In 2014, there were some 11.3 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. If you are, or have met someone from a mixed-status family, you likely know the constant stress and strain it can put on people. The recently published book, Dreams Deported: Immigrant Youth and Families Resist Deportation, lifts the stories of the undocumented immigrants who are facing the injustice of deportation.
This powerful book captures the stories of not only the deported but also the courageous immigrant youth and their families who are organizing for justice and human dignity, like Renata Teodoro, a lead coordinator for Massachusetts-based Student Immigrant Movement (SIM).
We’re holding a breakfast and roundtable with one of the book’s co-authors, Kent Wong. We will hold a meet-and-greet before work (from 8:30 to 9:00 AM) and a conversation with Kent at 9:00AM. We will video our conversation and put the video on our website for our west-coast friends & non-morning people.
Spanish interpretation will be available; other languages available on request.
