Social Justice Movie Night: “Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America”
Wednesday, March 14th 2018, 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
"Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America"
Growing up in rural North Carolina, Moises Serrano fell in love with a country that refused to recognize his full humanity, both as an undocumented immigrant and as a gay man. The documentary Forbidden follows Moises’ personal journey as an activist fighting for the American Dream. Moises faces significant hurdles based on his undocumented status, his sexuality, and the limited resources available in rural areas. His story of personal transformation inspires audiences to ask reflective questions: How can obstacles in our lives lead us to our life purpose? How can we create change in our communities, state and country? How can different oppressed groups work together for justice?
The event is sponsored by The Diversity Retention and Recruitment Committee, Department of Social Work and El Pueblo.
