Partnered with The FLi Center, this panel of artists will explore questions of identity, survival, and the racialization of undocumented communities in mainstream narratives. Who is being erased from the discourse surrounding race, immigration, and documentation? What modalities of resistance are being de-legitimized? What is the queer and trans experience in the midst of it all?

Co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity, Native and Indigenous Studies at Brown, the Provost's Office and the Office of Residential Life.
