Simmering underneath immigration policy debates today are deep moral questions about who “we” are and who gets to decide what is “just.” So too in health care policy debates. In her book Communities of Health Care Justice, Cambridge author Charlene Galarneau argues that communities - inclusive of all persons present, are critical moral actors in defining and creating just communities. Three justice standards: inclusive communities, whole person care, and participation as effective voice, are relevant to both health policy and immigration policy.
At this Be the Change Sunday, Charlene Galarneau and a representative of the Cambridge Interfaith Sanctuary Coalition will speak briefly to issues of current immigration policy, community, and justice leading to a discussion among attendees. Our one-hour event (3:00pm-4:00pm) ends with several opportunities for those present to take timely action related to immigration policy.
