Adult Forum April 11, 11am "Both Sides Now: a Border Immersion Experience" by Brian McDonald, 2020 AMMPARO Team Participant

The word “amparo” in Spanish means the protection of a living creature from suffering or damage. The ELCA’s strategy to Accompanying Migrant Minors with Protection, Advocacy, Representation and Opportunities (AMMPARO) was envisioned after witnessing the plight of children who are forced to flee their communities because of complex and interrelated reasons, including chronic violence, poverty, environmental displacement and lack of opportunities in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.  McDonald and others from our Southeastern ELCA Synod travelled to Peace Lutheran Church in Las Cruces, New Mexico in early 2020 to witness the way in which AMMPARO supports immigrants seeking the safety of the United States.
