Supera las fronteras (Transcend Borders): Spirituality and Migration Activism

Thursday, May 26
11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

How might spirituality, faith, or religion motivate the work of migration activists? In order to answer this question, 2021-2022 Duffy fellows Madeline Hilf and Afrah Bandagi interviewed activists in New York City and at the Arizona-Mexico border during an investigative trip in early January 2022.

Madeline Hilf is a Fordham University senior double majoring in music and film and minoring in Spanish, and she is currently studying abroad at Pontificia Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile. This summer, Hilf will serve as a full-time volunteer at Kino Border Initiative, a migration justice advocacy organization in Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Mexico.

Afrah Bandagi is a Fordham University junior from Long Island, and she is double-majoring in philosophy and political science. Bandagi is an aspiring immigration attorney and she hopes to make migration justice her life’s work.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
