“Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move” with Professor and Author Reece Jones

When: Sunday, April 9, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • 02116 • Boston

Forty thousand people died trying to cross international borders in the past decade, with the high-profile deaths along the shores of Europe only accounting for half of the grisly total. The presentation will draw on the stories of migrants whose lives are shaped by the violence of borders. The poor are restricted by the lottery of birth to slum dwellings, while the wealthy travel without constraint, exploiting pools of cheap labor and lax environmental regulations.

When: Sunday, June 5, 2016, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street • 2nd floor • Boston

A sea-change is taking place in the way churches approach their homeless neighbors, and the programs they create to respond to neighbors in need. In this talk Kate Layzer will try to describe that change, what’s important about it, and how it is being expressed in several different area ministries in the Boston area, including a program she founded last year, the Friday Cafe, where she focuses on building community between housed and homeless, mainstream and marginalized.
