Contemporary Challenges to Im/migrant Rights

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Dr. Elizabeth Aranda’s presentation discusses the current political climate engulfing immigrants’ lives, challenging their rights to work, obtain health care, travel, to worship in the community, and carry on with their everyday lives. Recent lies, instilling fear in immigrant communities have led some to leave the state. This presentation discusses the implications of these laws. Parking is available on-site. Refreshments will be served.

This program accompanies Voices and Votes: Democracy in America opening at the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center on March 23, 2024.

Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the local exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
