Description


ABOUT EVENT:

As part of the Challenging Conversations event series, the Institute of Arts & Humanities (IAH) at UC San Diego invites you to a special presentation discussing deportation and border policy in Mexico and the United States.

Special guests include members of Otros Dreams en Accion (ODA), including Co-Director Maggie Loredo, who work on both sides of the border with Mexicans deported during the Obama and Trump administrations. Loredo and ODA members will discuss the realities of the aftermath of deportation, the effect of U.S. and Mexican policies on deported communities, their advocacy work in Mexico and the U.S., and the lives of undocumented, deported and returned communities now living in exile.

The event will conclude with an audience question and answer session.

Event is FREE and open to the public. PLEASE RSVP - space is limited!



ABOUT: Otros Dreams en Accion (ODA):
