Another Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Event

This unique evening of performances will feature a collaboration of poets, musicians, and actors from the Silver City Community Theater exploring how immigration and border issues affect our lives and communities.  It’s happening Saturday, January 18, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, 3845 Swan St. in Silver City. Admission is a suggested donation of $10 per adult, however, no one will be turned away. All donations will go to support refugees and asylum seekers. 

The artists will express in poetry, song and acting how immigration events on our southwest border affect us, and our lives in New Mexico and in the United States. 

There will be a mix of poems and music performed by Elise Stuart, former Poet Laureate of Silver City, Tony Russ, Amos Torres, Ian Bailey, Joe Neri, Marty Eberhardt, and Maria Casler.  Following that, members of the SILVER CITY COMMUNITY THEATER along with other actors will perform “A Scene from Our Border,” a 10 minute play written by Andy Payne, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

At the conclusion of the program the audience can participate in a short discussion about the topics illustrated by the performances and addressing the question: How do we bring about positive change regarding immigration?  

Donations from this and other events will continue to benefit the UUFSC Social Justice Committee and the work it does in supporting immigration reform, income inequality, climate change and other social justice issues in our larger community.

For more information about this event call 575-956-5686.
