At a moment when the rights of immigrants are under constant attack, a more complete story of immigration needs to be told to address the harms perpetuated by immigration enforcement practices and policies that extend beyond the crisis at the border. Whether it’s through raids, people being picked up at courthouses, or being forced to take sanctuary – families are being targeted and separated across the country.
Join us to learn more about this injustice through a screening of short films and discussion about immigrant justice.
This event is free and open to everyone.
