Last Friday afternoon a group from San Diego Veterans For Peace traveled to Tijuana to attend a program put on by UC Davis regarding the Humanization of Deportees, with particular emphasis on the Deported Veterans in Baja California. Here is an "After Action Report" from one of their newer members, Stephanie Siegel.
UC Davis Conference in Tijuana, on 22 February 2019, was my first VFP activity outside of monthly meetings, since becoming a member. The presentation by UC Davis was very well done, and the introductions by the Deported Veterans included personal stories that were quite poignant. The best part of this activity overall, was experiencing the camaraderie, hospitality, and positive attitude that was embedded in each interaction. This meeting gave me an opportunity to feel "connected", to San Diego VFP members, a few from other chapters, and also the Deported Veterans.
