CANCELED: Online: Family Detention on the Ground: An Illinois Road Scholars Speakers Bureau Program In-Person
This speaker for this program had to cancel due to a family emergency.
Indian Prairie Library in conjunction with Addison Library, Itasca Library, Naperville Library, Westmont Library, Wheaton Library, and Literacy DuPage will host this Illinois Humanities Road Scholars Speakers Bureau program. In this 60 minute presentation, Megan Klein discusses her experience as a Proyecto Dilley volunteer at the largest detention facility for migrant women in children in the US. The presentation centers on the stories of the women and children that she advocated for in an effort to situate the topic of immigration in the individual migrants themselves.
Megan encourages questions and discussion at the end of the presentation.
