Full schedule this evening with awesome activities related to DREAMS @Dream_RC and #blacklivesmatter
This is the description of today’s activity for the DREAM-related week.
Join Tech DREAMers as we host a panel about the U.S. immigrant detention system. Bringing together different perspectives, this panel will be made up of Laura Sanders, a local artist from Blacksburg whose work focuses on detention centers in the American Southwest; Marybeth Onyeukw, a Black undocumented immigrant rights activist from Washington D.C.; and Dr. Rebecca Hester, a professor in Virginia Tech’s Science and Technology in Society Department whose work focuses on issues of health faced by undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
