Jan Haaken talks with Sophie Smith, a humanitarian aid worker in Arivaca Arizona and co-founder of People Helping People in the Border Lands. They discuss the recent trial of Scott Warren in Tucson--a fellow humanitarian aid worker who was criminally prosecuted for providing food and water to migrants crossing the borderlands. Smith takes up community responses to the trial and why the jury decision was a worrisome outcome. 

The film they mention, Undeterred, will play Thursday July 11th 7:00PM, at the Ainsworth United Church of Christ 2941 NE Ainsworth St, Portland, Oregon 97211
