Build a Longer Table, Not a Taller Wall: Why ALL Women Need to Pay Attention to the Immigration Crisis

We’re taking a break from our normal Summer School series this week for a solo soapbox episode on the immigration crisis here in the U.S. In this episode, we’re talking about what the border crisis is, why you should care regardless of your political party affiliation, and how what’s happening at the border is one of the biggest threats against womankind we’re facing today.

“Fact Check: Is There a Crisis at the Border?” (International Rescue Committee)

FAQs on the Border Crisis (International Rescue Committee)

“Here’s How You Can Help Migrant Children” (Women’s Refugee Commission)

“Hungry, Scared and Sick: Inside the Migrant Detention Center in Clint, Tex.” (New York Times)
