Kathryn Ferguson & Debbie McCullough

When: Thu., Oct. 7, 12:30 p.m. 2010

Although Arizona is notorious for its official hostility to Mexicans—as epitomized by the passage last spring of a draconian deportation law and the antics of the hateful clown Joe Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County—there are, in fact, decent people who live there. Some of them are involved in humanitarian assistance groups known as the Samaritans, who patrol remote desert locations where migrants have been forced to travel due to the expansion of the border patrol's range. The Samaritans leave water and other provisions where migrants may find them, and they also offer emergency assistance to those who require it. Today at 12:30 p.m., Kathryn Ferguson, who co-authored a book called Crossing With the Virgin: Stories From the Migrant Trail, and artist Debbie McCullough deliver a lecture about their experiences. The event—and lunch—are free. —David Fellerath
