Description:
Upcoming ROCLA Program--“Honduras: Dispelling the Myth” Sister Phyllis Tierney, SSJ Wednesday, June 7, 7 PM Downtown United Presbyterian Church* 121 North Fitzhugh Street Free and open to the public Sister Phyllis Tierney, SSJ, will discuss her experiences of a 10-day pilgrimage with the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity to Honduras in December 2016. Their goal was to learn the root causes of greatly increased migration from Honduras to the U.S. since the 2009 coup. Honduras has become known as the “the murder capital of the world.” Come and learn what has caused the growing violence, killings and human rights violations that have led Hondurans to flee their country in record numbers. Sister Phyllis is a long-time immigrant rights advocate and activist and member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester for 56 years. Since 2006, she has served as Coordinator of the Congregation's Justice and Peace office and is Editor of the Justice and Peace office’s bi-weekly newsletter, Just Us. You will also find her joining local delegations to legislators to advocate for justice for farmworkers and helping organize Rochester’s local “Nuns on the Bus” tours. *The church is accessible to the handicapped and looped for the hearing impaired.
