Just Like Us | RILA responds to DACA Issue

Just Like Us 2017(2)
On September 5, 2017, President Trump ended DACA and left over 2,000 Rhode Island DREAMers in limbo and in a state of shock. Now is NOT the time to be SILENT. This is the time to call upon our resilience and compassion and raise our voices. As Latinos and as artists we must stand side-by-side with those affected by this decision and join in the fight for their freedom.

Rhode Island Latino Arts is coordinating a bilingual reading of Just Like Us, a play by Latina playwright Karen Zacarias, based on the real story of DREAMers that shows the human cost of ending DACA. The reading will be co-hosted with support from Trinity Repertory Company.

Monday, October 16, 2017 | 7:00 PM
