The overt dehumanization and separation of children from their families, caging children in detention centers, unprecedented raids on the homes of immigrants, the misrepresentation of our communities as criminals and rapists is a direct attack on the Black and Brown communities we represent. We have a voice, we have power, we have communities, we have journalists, lawyers and artists. Activate these intelligences! Join us!
This presentation of the Art of Justice 10 will feature Maria Hinojosa, journalist, founder, president and CEO of Futuro Media Group; and, Esmeralda Simmons, founder and executive director of the Center for Law and Social Justice who together will present an open discussion linking the government’s inhumane policies and practices impacting immigrant children and their families. At the core of this conversation is the question, “How are immigration policies dismantling racial and civil rights, and impacting environmental protection as we plan a call to action for our communities’ critical involvement in protecting our human rights.
