Understanding US Imperialism: DACA & The Central American Migrant Crisis

Standard
Understanding US Imperialism: DACA & The Central American Migrant Crisis
Monday, November 13, 1:30-3:30pm.
Room 1B of the public library.


As the situation for immigrants in the United States becomes even more dire with the unfolding DACA repeal, it is important to consider contributing historical factors in an international context. This educational panel includes presentations and personal testimonies from the director of a migrant shelter in Mexico, a graduate student researching migrant crises, and activists fighting for immigrants’ rights in Indiana. Join us in learning about and discussing how state violence in the forms of displacement, detention, and deportation produce a vicious cycle of isolation, desperation, and poverty.

Panelists:
– Marbella Chavez, activist with the Center for Healing & Hope
– Guadalupe Pimentel, Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance (IUYA)
– Sayra Campos, Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance (IUYA)
– Nicholas Greven, activist and researcher with the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at IU
– Ramón Marquez, director of the La 72 migrant shelter in Tenosique, Tabasco.

Co-sponsored by the IU Department of History, IU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and IU Latino Studies Program.
