Hendel Leiva and Eliana Fernandez speak on the importance of using one’s story to support the effort for equality and justice.
Stay after for a showing of Hendel’s film, From One Mistake, from 12:30pm – 2:00pm.
With the news that the Deferred Action (DACA) program was cancelled last week, Long Island immigration activists Hendel Leiva and Eliana Fernandez join us to premiere their new documentary, and speak to the importance of becoming engaged with the issues that affects more than 800,000 DACA recipients, and 11 million undocumented immigrants, who also live in our local communities.
From One Mistake is a first hand account from Hendel Leiva, about the factors that led him to target day laborers as a high school student, despite having an undocumented father, and the connection to the rise in today’s hate incidents in America. From One Mistake is a film about the journey to self-awareness, empowerment, and action, in today’s hostile political atmosphere.
