El Grito de las Fronteras/Cry from the Border Teach-In
September 5-9, El Paso, Texas
Iliff School of Theology is an organizing partner for a national rally (Sept 6 to 9) protesting the detention of immigrant children.
The event will include a teach-in and round table discussions. We will gather in El Paso, Texas.
We need to develop a theological, political, and ethical critique that can support our faithful action and ground us as we bring the border back to the center of the nation’s attention. We need time together to breathe the air of the borderlands, listen to the stories of the people there, and space to walk the soil. We need a theology of place.
