EVENT TONIGHT, Tuesday May 22. Starts at 7:00 pm
The ACLU of Monterey County will be sponsoring an event at thePeaceResourceCentertonight, Tuesday May 22, starting at 7:00 pm.
“Complex Allegiances” is a reading and panel discussion that will focus on the back end of immigration – what happens after an immigrant gains citizenship. Its focus will be on the human element which tends to be overlooked in the debate over immigration, both legal and illegal. Civil liberties will also be discussed.
The reading will be from Constellations of Belonging (Wise Up Press, Decatur GA), a soon-to-be published anthology of writing by immigrants turned citizens, including two teachers at the Defense Language Institute. The panel will consist of contributors to the anthology, and will include a directed conversation involving the audience.
