Immigration is an issue that taps into deeply held values – fairness, empathy, compassion. It also taps into visceral fears, which is why it has been powerfully divisive – and exploited. Find out more at Immigration Justice: A Panel Discussion, 6 p.m. Sunday, November 18, at the Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine, 96 Harlow St., Bangor.

Our four distinguished panelists – Robert Glover, associate professor of political science at UMaine; Beth Stickney, director of the Maine Business Immigration Coalition; Carlos Maibeth-Mortimer, a native of Nicaragua living in Maine; and Dennis Chinoy, activist with the local group Power in Community Alliances (PICA) – will explore the deadly challenges in Central America that have caused people to flee, U.S. policies on Latin America, and how immigration fared as an issue in the midterm elections, with implications for 2020.

The event is sponsored by the Education Committee of the Peace & Justice Center and PICA.  It is free and open to the public.
