Expanding Sanctuary dir. by Kristal Sotomayor, (2020, 26 min)

For the past decade, Philadelphia has been a leader in the sanctuary city movement. Juntos, a Latinx immigrant rights organization, has learned that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been using the Philadelphia Police’s Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System (PARS) database to gather deportation orders. To stop the collaboration, the Latinx immigrant community must now organize to pass historic immigrant and human rights policies to protect their community. Currently in post-production.

Join us for a community rough-cut screening followed by a filmmaker Q&A and discussion about the effect of COVID-19 on the immigrant population with Linda Hernandez of Juntos.
