Guest Lecture: Undocumented Americans and Their Families

May 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

What Will You Do When They Start to Round Us Up:
Undocumented Americans and Their Families

An evening with Kathie Friedman

Why is the predicament of undocumented Americans a Jewish concern?
Why did immigration agents arrest 600 people across the US in one week this winter?
Who are those who were arrested, and how many more are there? Are they criminals, or are they Americans without papers?

We will explore what undocumented Americans are saying about the recent executive orders and the current state of the debate over comprehensive immigration reform. There will be a discussion and Q&A session after the lecture.

There is no cost to attend; all are welcome.

Kathie Friedman is Associate Professor at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and the Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Washington. Her main area of study and research has been comparative forced migrations and immigration, particularly to the United States and the EU, with a focus on ethnic and political incorporation. Currently Friedman is working on two book projects tentatively titled: The Afterlife of Ethnic Cleansing: Memory, Identity, and Belonging in America’s Bosnian Refugee Diaspora; and Becoming Political after Persecution: The Civic Engagement of Young Adults with Refugee Backgrounds.
