University of Minnesota faculty and advocacy leaders from the Twin Cities’s communities of color will lead a public discussion at 6 p.m. Monday, May 22 about the physical and mental toll on women, girls, and families of color surrounding executive decisions and recent actions by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
Participants will be invited to share testimony, engage in small group conversations, and explore how University researchers can better partner with communities on the issues of immigration and deportation. An hors d'oeuvres reception will precede the program.
The event is presented in partnership with the University's Race, Indigeniety, Gender and Sexuality and Women and Girls of Color initiatives.
The event is free and open to the public, but reservation are requested. The conversation will be in English. Register now.
