Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and the Futuro Media Group, producer of Latino USA

Join us for a powerful conversation with Maria Hinojosa, an award-winning journalist, and Lulú Martínez, one of the 2013 “Chicagoans of the Year” and DREAM activist. They will address issues of citizenship, immigration, and belonging while recognizing women’s leadership and activism in movements that claim identity, space, and rights. Be a part of this dynamic dialogue and share a story on Migration & Transformation.*

Lulú Martínez is an undocumented queer Chicana and a student in the Gender and Women’s Studies Program at UIC. She is a co-founder of the Immigrant Youth Justice League (IYJL) and Fearless Undocumented Alliance (FUA), and has participated in local and national undocumented youth-led actions.

Maria Hinojosa’s 25-year history as an award-winning journalist includes executive producing and anchoring both a radio show and television series: Latino USA, distributed by NPR, and America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa, airing this fall on PBS and the WORLD Channels. In 2010, she launched the Futuro Media Group to produce journalism giving voice to a more diverse America.

*Migration & Transformation is a project of the UIC Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change that highlights the different migration experiences of people living in the U.S. and how this shapes their identities and sense of belonging in our society.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.

Co-sponsors: Supported in part by The Ford Foundation, and co-sponsored by the UIC student organizations Fearless Undocumented Alliance (FUA) and Heritage Garden Student Group
