Geraghty-Rathert Presents on Immigration and Pandemic, ARISE
Anne Geraghty-Rathert, professor in the Law, Crime and Social Justice Department, gave a presentation about immigration issues in relation to the pandemic to community members and members of the ARISE organization in South Texas, on Friday, Nov. 20, 2020.
Faculty and students of Webster University, in conjunction with the ongoing humanitarian efforts of ARISE, attempt to assist people living in the colonias at the Texas/Mexico border with health, immigration and other issues.
Geraghty-Rathert was assisted by Webster faculty members Mary Ann Drake (Nursing) and Silvia Navia (Global Languages, Cultures & Societies), and the entire entire presentation was translated by student Karla Medina, both out loud and on her presentation slides.
