This event has been canceled. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

In honor of International Women’s Day, join IPS project Break the Chain Campaign for a screening of the PBS special “Lost in Detention” and an open audience discussion about the film with a panel of experts who will speak about the intersections of gender and detention in the United States.

“Lost in Detention” is Frontline’s hour-long documentary highlighting a year-long examination into the Obama administration’s strict enforcement of immigration policy. The Obama administration has detained or deported more immigrants than any other administration in the history of the United States. Issues discussed include Secure Communities, detention centers, and the far-reaching implications of the immigration crackdown – for Obama and citizens alike.

Panelists:

  • Jennifer Podkul from the Women’s Refugee Commission
  • Chris Harley from the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF)
  • Sarahi Uribe from the National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON)

With opening remarks from BTCC Project Director Tiffany Williams.

Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to tiffany@ips-dc.org.
