Sanctuary Through the Eyes of Women and Girls: A community conversation about immigration and the impact of deportation and racialized surveillance on families of color. University of Minnesota faculty and advocacy leaders from the Twin Cities’ communities of color will lead a public discussion about the physical and mental toll on women, girls, and families of color surrounding executive decisions and recent actions by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Participants will be invited to share testimony, engage in small group conversations, and explore how University researchers can better partner with communities on the issues of immigration and deportation. An hors d’oeuvres reception will precede the program.

The event is presented in partnership with the University’s Race, Indigeniety, Gender and Sexuality and Women and Girls of Color initiatives. For more information, please visit this page.
