Urban Action 8/27

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Border crisis is subject of talk

The Rochester Committee on Latin America will present a talk by Daniel Reichman, "What's Causing Honduran Migration to the United States?" at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 3. Reichman is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Rochester. The recent surge of children coming unaccompanied to the US border from Honduras has turned attention to violent crime in that country's cities. Reichman will talk about the short-term causes of the migration and the political and economic changes in Honduras since the 2009 government turmoil. The event will be held at Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 North Fitzhugh Street.
