ABRAZOS – An Invitation
Thursday, May 17
Bainbridge Public Library
The Cedars Justice Network invites you to see the documentary film, ABRAZOS, which tells the story of a group of U.S. Citizen children, sons and daughters of undocumented immigrants, who travel from Minnesota to Guatemala to meet their grandparents – and in some instances their siblings – for the first time. There are 4.5 million other U.S. citizen children like them, who have at least one undocumented parent and are part of mixed-status or transnational families, and ABRAZOS tells the story of 14 of them as they embrace each other, share stories, strengthen traditions, and begin to reconstruct their cultural identities.
The showing is being co-sponsored by Cedars UU Church, Cross Cultural Journeys, Eagle Harbor Congregational Church, KIAC, The Traveler, and YES! Magazine.
