DAY ONE – IMMIGRATION & RACE
Join HIP and our panelists, Abena Abraham from Black Immigrant Collectives and Nora Picasso Uvalle from TX Rio Grande Legal Aid, in discussing how prevailing narratives and structural racism affect Black migrants, highlighted through the recent influx in Haitian migrants, and ways to leverage the law and community power to combat it.
DAY TWO – IMMIGRATION & GENDER
Our second event is a screening of Lingua Franca, directed by Isabel Sandoval. The film follows Olivia, an undocumented trans woman, as she works as a live-in caregiver for an elderly woman in Brooklyn. While the stress of her status follows her, she soon falls in love with her charge’s grandson and the film explores their romance.
DAY THREE – IMMIGRATION & ABILITY
Join our panelists Katherine Perez from the Coelho Center for Disability Law, Policy, and Innovation, Roxanna Moussavian from Pangea Legal Services, and Michelle Garcia from Cambiando Vidas, in discussing the intersections between disability and immigration, using the recent public charge rule as a guide, and how lawyers and community organizers are advocating for improvements.
