Join Director Ruben Garcia in Conversation on Race, Violence, and Authority

Juan Patricio Peraza Quijada, a 19-year-old guest at Annunciation House, was shot and killed by a Border Patrol agent while taking out the trash in February 2003. Since then, there have been far too many tragedies like this, where young men of color have been targeted by law enforcement for petty crimes, or no crime at all, resulting in death for the young men and few consequences for the people that killed them.

Annunciation House director Ruben Garcia will engage in conversation with two other advocates to speak about the intersection of race, authority and violence largely as it relates to the unforgivable deaths of these human beings. Please join us:
