Reflections on the Oxford High School Shooting

269835838_10159168863621028_4925555154622004516_n.jpg

On November 30, 2021, a mass shooting occurred at Oxford High School. Four students were killed, and more students & a teacher were wounded. The on-going increase in school shooting events has led to detrimental repercussions for all of us. As part of our on-going work to understand both the roots and impact of violence, MPT requested Kim Redigan provide her reflection on the Oxford School shootings from the perspective of a teacher and MPT's Intern Cassidy Versen's reflection on this event from the perspective of a student.

What's Really Happening at the Border -  Recording
 
 

MPT's Kim Redigan discusses her work at the U.S.-Mexico border, with a focus on her participation in a recent migrant-led public witness in Nogales. Since serving on two MPT peace teams in Tijuana, she has returned to the border four times. She and her students helped migrants in the Arizona desert and this summer she worked with asylum seekers in El Centro, CA through Catholic Charities. She is currently enrolled in Villanova's Interdisciplinary Immigration Studies Training for Advocates.
