Keeping Families Together

October 4, 2018

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and Alianza Americas

The US government’s recent actions—ripping babies from their parents’ arms, caging toddlers, and detaining families in for-profit jails—mark a heartbreaking new low in a decades-long downward spiral of US migration policy. Yet these actions, however horrific, are not without precedent and today’s immigration crisis extends well past the border.

Join us as members from Alianza Americas identify concrete actions that each of us can take to move the needle toward a better outcome for all families and communities and address the following questions:

  • What is the role of the United States in Central America over the past decades and more recently?
  • What is happening in US immigration and migration policy that separates kids from parents?

This program is co-sponsored by UIC student organizations Feminist United and Fearless Undocumented Alliance.
