Cara Mía Theatre programs Community Conversations relevant not only to current productions, but also to current social and cultural movements.
The highlight of ‘Community Conversations’ programming is to provide a place for open dialogue regarding an issue with insight from those connected to it.
Join us for a FREE community conversation entitled "Child Immigration Amid Zero Tolerance: How Can You Help?". The conversation is inspired by company member, Frida Espinosa Müller's play, Ursula and will take place on August 31st from 5:30pm-7:00pm at the Latino Cultural Center.
Free to the public.
This conversation will feature a panel comprised of immigration lawyers, Nubia Torres of Catholic Charities Dallas and Felix Villalobos of RAICES Dallas, DACA recipient and Outreach Manager for the Texas Business Immigration Coalition Juan Carlos Cerda as well as psychology postdoctoral fellow for the Momentous Institute, Dr. Yolanda Valenzuela. The panel and conversation will be facilitated by North Texas activist and community organizer, Soraya Colli from Planned Parenthood Texas Votes.
The conversation will tackle policies surrounding immigrating young and seeking asylum. Additionally, we will discuss the impact of immigration, separation, detention, and court proceedings on young immigrants.
Most importantly, we will discuss what we and our community members can do to help the crisis at the boarder. We will provide a variety of realistic, concrete steps people can take.
The event will be followed by a reception with authentic Honduran food and beverages.
Stay after the conversation for the 8PM performance of Ursula.
