Humanities lab film screening: Which Way Home

Thursday, December 3, at 7 p.m., Graham Hall

Traversing more than 1450 miles upcountry, Mexican freight trains routinely are boarded by migrants hoping to reach America. Among the thousands who ride the trains many are children traveling alone. They come from all over Mexico and Central America risking everything for the chance of a better life.

Introduced by Professor Velma Garcia and Billy Peard, immigration attorney at Central West Justice Center in Springfield, focusing on marginalized Hispanic communities.
