Join us on June 25th!

Su Casa is pleased to welcome Ms. Elvia Ruiz, a human rights worker from La 72 Migrant Home and Refuge in Tenosique, Tabasco, Mexico. LA 72 is a project of the Franciscan Province of Southeast Mexico. Last year, La 72 received more than 15,000 migrants and asylum seekers, mostly from Honduras and El Salvador. Ms. Ruiz will discuss human rights issues on Mexico’s southern border and the work of providing sanctuary to migrants seeking asylum and those on their way to the US. She will be joined in the discussion by Ms. Janna Lyhus, a former Su Casa Worker, and Ms. Claire Ramos, both of whom volunteered with La 72 over the past year. This presentation will be in English and Spanish.
