Documentary Film Screening and Discussion: Abrazos

  • Leonia Public Library 227 Fort Lee Road Leonia, NJ, 07605 United States (map)

ABRAZOS tells the transformational journey 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 who, like them, have at least one undocumented parent and are part of mixed-status families, ABRAZOS is the story of 14 of them.

Following the screening, there will be a discussion about the film and its topic hosted by Margaret White, Chair of the Community of Friends in Action.
