Enrique Morones: Internationally Acclaimed Human Rights Activist to Speak at Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus

Tri-C

CLEVELAND — Human rights activist Enrique Morones will discuss immigration issues at noon on Thursday, March 28, at Cuyahoga Community College’s ® Western Campus. His talk is free and open to students, faculty, alumni and community members.

 Morones is the founder of Border Angels, an all-volunteer group which places food, water and other provisions in the desert on the border areas to help save migrant lives.  Morones has been recognized as one of the 100 most influential Latinos in the United States by Hispanic Business Magazine.

 Marones is also the author of The Power of One, a memoir of his activism and the difference it is making in the American Southwest and its border lands.  Morones brings to the forefront the stories of those often forgotten in this fight for social justice.

 Immigration is among the most hotly debated issues of our time. Morones has met with President Barack Obama and appeared on CNN; x has led several cross-country marches to dramatize what he feels is the need for comprehensive federal immigration reform.  No other social justice advocate has made a greater impact on the lives of undocumented workers than Enrique Morones.

 Border Angels provides free legal advice for immigrants facing deportation and runs community awareness and education programs that work to prevent and reduce unnecessary deaths as it relates to travel and racial discrimination crime related deaths for immigrants.

 Following the presentation will be a book signing and reception with refreshments.
