Migrant Dreams: Then & Now

On October 26th we hosted an event focussed on the film Migrant Dreams, exploring migrant worker justice with speakers Min Sook Lee, Dr. Evelyn Encalada and Carlous Burrell. The panel discussion was lively and very insightful! Youth in attendance were encouraged to take their solidarity further by getting involved in local movements, and supporting organizations like Justicia for Migrant Workers & Migrant Rights Network. Thank you to the speakers and all who were able to attend!
