Princeton professor and author of “UNDOCUMENTED”, Dan-El Padilla Peralta shares the story of his own American dream. Arriving in the US from the Dominican Republic at the age of four, he lived in a NYC homeless shelter as an undocumented immigrant before eventually graduating from an Ivy league school at the top of his class.
Dan-el received his MPhil from the University of Oxford and his PhD in classics from Stanford University. In addition to his successful academic career, Padilla Peralta is an activist on immigration issues and will speak about the implications of the DACA decision not just for immigrants, but for all Americans. Do we not have a moral responsibility to stand with the undocumented in our communities? Join us for this important discussion.
Doors open at 6.30 pm.
This event is free and open to all.
