Border and Migrations Week Spring 2019

April 2nd – 6th 2019

The organizers would like to thank event participants for their time and enthusiasm.  Together, they brought Magis to our community’s reflections on refugees, immigration, and public policies.

We also thank attendees for taking time to join us. Your questions, comments, and presence made Border and Migrations Week better for all of us.
