The Whallonsburg Grange Lyceum series “Hidden in Plain Sight” is set to continue with the “Roxham Road: Irregular Border Crossings and Local Response,” an examination of irregular border crossings in a local town and the response of the community.
Roxham Road, a small dead-end street in Champlain, New York, has become a major issue in U.S. and Canadian politics over the last three years. SUNY Plattsburgh professors Amy Mountcastle and Liz Onasch join Champlain Mayor Janet McFetridge to discuss the Roxham Road border crossing into Canada, which has been used by 48,000 asylum-seekers.
The presentation is part of Whallonsburg Grange Hall’s “Hidden in Plain Sight” series, which looks at well-known things from unusual angles and examines objects and ideas that are hidden from plain view.
This event will take place Tuesday, February 25th at 7:30 pm. There is a $5 suggested donation; free for students. The Whallonsburg Grange Hall is located at 1610 NYS Route 22, in Essex.
More information is available on their website.
