November 2, 2020, Adrian, Michigan – Two women with strong connections to the Adrian Dominican Sisters recently participated in a dialogue on social justice issues facing people in rural Michigan and in Detroit. Associate Joan Ebbitt and Laura Negron-Terrones, Administrative Assistant for the Congregation’s Office of Immigration Assistance, spoke of the various issues facing people living in rural Michigan, particularly in Adrian and Lenawee County.
They participated in the Dialogue Across Geographic Divides, one of several virtual election-year visits by Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, for Nuns on the Bus. During their discussion, panelists from Adrian and from Detroit discovered a number of issues they held in common, including the lack of affordable housing and transportation.
Held every election year to inform the people of the United States about social justice issues, Nuns on the Bus is sponsored by NETWORK: a Catholic social justice lobby. Watch the video of Michigan Dialogue Across Geographic Divides.
