The immigration issue affects virtually every American, directly or indirectly, often in deeply personal ways.  

At this discussion, three options will be presented that reflect different ways of understanding what is at stake and they force us to think about what matters most to us when we face difficult problems that involve all of us and that do not have perfect solutions.

Cinema Tuesday - Thinking Green

We're thinking green this month - money, greed, and the economy, as well as the environment.

No Impact Man          (2008, NR)
What does it really take to live eco-effectively? For one year, Colin Beavan swore off plastic and toxins, turned off his electricity, went organic, became a bicycle nut, and tried to save the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his young daughter and his Prada-wearing wife along for the ride.

Peter Holland
McMeel Family Shakespeare Series

The University of Notre Dame’s Peter Holland, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Shakespeare, examines the great playwright’s skill at subtly raising questions that resonate to this day. What does it mean, for example, to “forgive and forget?” Why do we (and did King Lear) say it?
