The situation at the border is a humanitarian crisis that feels both painfully real and close-to-home, but also distant and remote. We proudly invite border advocate Jill Zwiers to 'this is a bookstore' to open dialogue about the situation and how we in Kalamazoo can help.
Jill has been working in Tijuana with asylum seekers, and brings us photos and stories from the refugees she has been working with to help bring the border closer to Michigan.
this is a bookstore/Bookbug will also be highlighting local action groups that have been advocating for family safety. As a member of this community and nation, we see the urgency of this situation and are committed to being a place to gather, learn, and advocate for the ongoing safety of all.
