On Friday, July 17 three speakers joined us for another Biennial Coffee Chat: Beyond Borders, a discussion on migration, the fluidity of borders and the people who cross them. Speakers join us from Denver, Mexico City to Ottawa, Canada drawing from their personal experiences, activism and academic study as we explore how identity, culture and sense of belonging is influenced by the social construction of our borders.
