On Thursday, October 5th,  ECAR hosted Dr. Linda Rabben from the University of Maryland.  During her presentation, Dr. Rabben discussed sanctuary and asylum for refugees.  It was great to see so many ECAR volunteers and Guilford College students present at this very timely talk!  ECAR wants to thank Dr. Linda Rabben for coming to Guilford and taking the time to talk about this important issue!
