The Flores Exhibits

October 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm CDT

Educators, students, artists, and community advocates present the sworn testimony of children held in detention facilities at the US/Mexico border. The Flores Exhibits aims to effect change in our immigration system through narrative-driven advocacy. Their source is a body of testimonies gathered in June 2019 by a team of lawyers visiting detention facilities as monitors for the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement, which set limits on the length of time and conditions under which children can be held in immigration detention.

Dr. Sergio González: We’re Meant to be Here: Midwestern Latinx Communities with an Emphasis on WI

September 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pm 7:45 pm CDT

Join historian-scholar-activist Dr. Sergio M. González, Assistant Professor of Latinx Studies at Marquette University, for an informative and thought-provoking presentation giving a historical framework to the present-day issues facing Latinx communities. Assimilation, gentrification, representation, immigration, DACA… what does this mean to Latinx communities? What about here in Wisconsin? We invite you to come listen and learn.
Q&A time will be included. No registration required for this event. In-person event. Location: W.J. Niederkorn Library Community Room (lower level)
Dr. Sergio M. González bio:
Sergio M. González is an assistant professor of Latinx Studies in the Departments of History and Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Marquette University. As a historian of twentieth-century U.S. immigration, labor, and religion, his scholarship focuses on the development of Latino communities in the U.S. Midwest. His first book, Mexicans in Wisconsin, offered a concise introductory history of Mexican settlement and community formation across the state. His current project, Strangers No Longer: Latino Belonging and Faith in 20th Century Wisconsin, explores the relationship between religiosity, Latinidad, and social justice movements in twentieth century Wisconsin. González has bridged his academic scholarship to broader audiences by serving as a founder of and lead organizer for the Dane Sanctuary Coalition as well as serving on the board of Voces de la Frontera Action, the advocacy arm of Wisconsin’s largest and most active membership-based immigrant justice organization.
This event is part of W.J. Niederkorn Library’s Racial Justice & Implicit Bias series (https://www.wjnlib.org/…/racial-justice-implicit-bias…/), which goes from Aug-Nov 2021. Thank you to the Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries grant through the American Library Association (ALA) that we were awarded and provided the generous funding to make this series possible.

MIGRATION WEBINAR SERIES: LATIN AMERICA AND THE U.S.

October 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm CDT

Millions of people every year are forcibly displaced from their homes. Because of the extent of the phenomenon throughout the Americas today, migration is seen by politicians and lawmakers as a problem that needs regulation and control. This symposium examines human stories of displacement and the histories, relationships, and interests underlying the politicization of migration in the Americas.

Panelists will examine what makes migration unique in regions throughout Central, North and South America. They will provide historical, political and socio-cultural analysis to examine the contexts of immigration in these regions. In particular, we will focus on:

  • The current refugee crisis in Central America, and Venezuela;
  • The experiences of migrant women and children detained in U.S. detention centers;
  • Migration and labor in the Midwest;
  • What might U.S. immigration reform look like in the future? Driven by violence, migration faces militarization and criminalization, which is accompanied by social dispossession of indigenous and poor communities, transnational capital involvement, and results in the shifting of sexual and gender relations.
