Latin History and the Importance of Sanctuary

Robert Sadler and Robin Jensen

Cortes and his soldiers invaded Mexico in the early 1500’s in pursuit of gold. A hundred years later, only about 4% of the indigenous people had survived. They spoke neither English nor Spanish, the two major languages of the Americas. What’s it like for one of these indigenous people to immigrate to America? Worship Associates Bob Sadler and Robin Jensen will lead an exploration of the injustice left behind by Latin history and the importance of sanctuary by sharing the story of Yoni Hernandez, who recently graduated from CSUMB and is barely protected by DACA from deportation.
