Join us for “Fighting Back Racism and Food Injustice Thru Green Spaces” a film screening and conversation to kick off Latinx Heritage Month. We will be screening the award winning docu-thriller, The Infiltrators (2019) followed by a conversation with poet, painter, and immigration rights activist Marco Saavedra and Professor Ángeles Donoso Macaya, Faculty Lead of Archives in Common.

The Infiltrators tells the true story of two young immigrants who get purposefully arrested by Border Patrol, and put in a shadowy for-profit detention center. The film follows Marco and Viri, members of a group of radical Dreamers who are on a mission to stop deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention.”
