Unscalable legal walls have long existed from the mid-1800s until the 1960s that prevented many non-Europeans from entering the US. Join us as we provide a historical context for understanding recent Executive Orders that ban specific people from entering the US. The session will seek to go beyond a sense of the immorality of recent Executive Orders and understand how they fit into a long history of “wall” building that has excluded and isolated large communities and populations. This event is in the tradition of “Teach-ins” of the 60s to provide a factual foundation for fostering resistance.
