Event: Refugees in Our Backyard, Fri. 2/2/16, 7pm

You are invited you to attend Refugees in Our Backyard.

Friday, February 5th at 7pm at Bakersfield College’s Levan Center, 1801 Panorama Dr, Bakersfield, CA 93305.

Holly Cooper, a law professor at UC Davis, and some of her students, will speak about the current refugee crisis going on through out the United States as well as here in Kern County.

She wrote a great piece in the LA Times about the Mesa Verde detention facility in Bakersfield, that currently houses 400 undocumented inmates, many of them seeking asylum.
