Dignity and Justice: Welcoming the Stranger at Our Border

With Linda Dakin-Grimm, Lawyer and Immigration Advocate

Wednesday, July 15th
7:00 p.m. via Zoom

Join Holy Family South Pasadena for a conversation with Linda Dakin-Grimm, lawyer and immigration advocate. Combining powerful storytelling, thoughtful analysis, and interactive discussion, Linda will lead us to consider how we are called as Catholics to recognize the dignity of the stranger at our border.  She will share insights into the intersection of Catholic social teaching, immigration law and the effects of prejudice, poverty, crime, violence and war.

On a pro bono basis, Linda has represented more than 75 unaccompanied children and families who must navigate the U.S. immigration system and adjust to life in Los Angeles. A senior consulting partner at Milbank LLP, Linda received her BA from Yale, her JD from Harvard Law and a masters in Theology from LMU.

Linda and her husband are parishioners at American Martyrs Church in Manhattan Beach. Her first book, “Dignity and Justice: Welcoming the Stranger at Our Border,” will be published by Orbis Press in September 2020.
