I Define Myself: Undocumented and Unafraid – Portrait Project

September 11, 2012

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

We share our stories publicly, as undocumented members of this country, bringing forth our existences and realities into the narrative of the United States and global society.



Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center


Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center for the opening reception of the photography exhibit “I Define Myself: Undocumented and Unafraid”, and a panel discussion about President Obama’s announcement on “Deferred Action”. Learn about this new administrative measure from leaders of the Filipino, Latino, and Polish communities as they share their stories and discuss the local and national political frameworks that affect undocumented students.
