Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth : A Film Screening
The film, Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth, illuminates some of the insurmountable struggles that undocumented children and their families face living in the United States. An estimated 65,000 undocumented students graduate from high school every year in the United States with little or no opportunity for higher education or ever garnering gainful employment. The DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors)addresses the situation of students who came to the U.S. with their parents as young children and who were constitutionally guaranteed a free elementary and secondary education, only to graduate from high school and become unlawfully present when they turn 18 years old.
Free, light lunch available at 11:30am.
Open to all.
