Join us September 11 at 11:30 a.m. at the Multicultural Engagement Center at the fall semester event for the MEC Social Justice Library where “¡Presente! Latin@ Immigrant Voices in the Struggle for Racial Justice” will be discussed. Book contributors Manuel Ramírez and María Duque as well as co-editor Cristina Tzintzún will present. Light refreshments will be provided.
¡Presente! offers a rare perspective on the immigrant rights movement, written by immigrant workers themselves. Including a range of essays exploring the intersection of race, class, and immigration in the U.S., this anthology challenges its readers to move beyond a “legalization-only” framework and embrace a broader vision for social justice organizing embodied in the work of grassroots organizations across the country resisting state repression, cultivating solidarity, and building alternative models for progressive social change. Offered in a dual-language edition, with a foreword by Democracy Now! co-host Juan González.
The MEC is located in SAC 1.102. For more information, please contact Rocío Villalobos, firstname.lastname@example.org.
