Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled due to the presenter's family emergency.

Megan Klein discusses her experience as a Proyecto Dilley volunteer at the largest detention facility for migrant women and 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.
