Faith in the Borderlands – Thursday, Mar. 2, 6:00 pm

Enjoy a “FRANK Talk” about immigration and religion at the Florence Community Library!

Come to the library Thursday, March 2, at 6:00 pm, as the library hosts Dr. Leah Sarat of ASU’s School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies. Dr. Sarat will present her AZ Humanities FRANK Talk, Faith in the Borderlands: Immigration and Religion in Arizona, discussing ways in which immigrants turn to religious beliefs for strength, empowerment, and to establish a sense of belonging.

The FRANK Talk format emphasizes discussion on issues facing our communities, which means audience discussion and participation is strongly encouraged. Additional discussion points during this program will include the role of religion for immigrants starting over in a new land, and religion’s role for the undocumented facing detention and possible deportation. All points of view are welcome, with respect for others and a willingness to listen the only requirements!

This free program is made possible by AZ Humanities, in partnership with the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Arizona Secretary of State. For more information, or to sign up, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
