On Tuesday, a handful of community members in Carbondale will discuss their recent trips to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Presenters include Rev. Shawna Foster, of the Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist Congregation, and Claire Noone, an attorney in Glenwood Springs.

They will speak about their individual trips to the border and their reasons for going, from providing legal advice to immigrants, to protesting the Trump administration's immigration policies.

Sophia Clark, the event’s organizer, says the issues on the border impact the migrant community in the Roaring Fork Valley.

 

"These aren’t just random people on the border. They’re people who are coming to our community who have family members here," she said.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Third Street Center.
