“Border Crossings” was the theme for the summer Hearth gathering. Six brave souls told personal stories of crossing racial, social, legal, and physical borders on Thursday, June 11th. The proceeds collected at the door benefitted the Rogue Valley office of Oregon Action, a non-profit organization that works for health, racial, and economic equity here in Southern Oregon. Tellers included Alma Rosa Alvarez, Andrea Anderson, Ricardo Lujan, Jeff Golden, Marvin Ratner, and Julie Lockhart. Music by Wendi Stanek, Duane Whitcomb and friends including Abe Neimark and Talen Heater.
