Location: Hall Center Conference Hall
This event is for Friends of the Hall Center only.

A senior in Journalism and French and a former Hall Center Scholar, will present from her Whitcomb Memorial award winning essay. In "Notes from the Borderlands: A Student's Experience Working with Undocumented Migrants on the U.S./Mexico Border," Daldorph will explore her life changing experience as a humanitarian worker in the Sonoran Desert. From her Alternative Breaks trip in March 2009 to work with the Tucson-based No Mas Muertes/No More Deaths organization, Daldorph observed first-hand the trials and tribulations of migrants to the US from the Mexican border. She will share haunting images and personal accounts to tell the story of how the migrants' fear-filled desert journey changed her and spurred her reflections on US immigration policy.
