La Pena Cultural Center
3105 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley CA
|Organizer/Author||No More Deaths|
Join the La Peña community for an interactive discussion about migration, borders, and resistance, both at the border and in the Bay Area
We will hear from No More Deaths/No Más Muertes, an organization based in Southern Arizona. NMD works to end death and suffering in the borderlands through direct aid, border-patrol abuse exposure and awareness campaigns. We will screen clips from UNDIVIDED, a short film by Sophie Cooper in collaboration with Center for New Community. The film explores how immigration policies affect communities, how Black and Brown struggles overlap and how people are building alternative support networks as a form of resistance. During the discussion, we want to hear from you. How does the current immigration crisis affect the Bay Area? How can we collectively fight against the border and policies especially in the face of the newest wave of anti-immigrant sentiment?
We will feature Bay Area artists, including Malditoria. All proceeds go to No More Deaths/No Más Muertes. Please consider supporting with a donation, or by buying a poster, sticker, or t-shirt!
$7 suggested donation - Pre-Sale tickets available here!
