Pooja Gehi presents “Pushing the Borders: Unshackling Our Communities,” a panel at Creating Change

When: Saturday, February 1, 2014, 9:00 am - 10:30 am (iCal) Where: Hilton Americas-Houston , 1600 Lamar St, Houston, TX (See map)

We will discuss our graphic novel community education project that we are developing as a tool to end mass deportation. We will explain how ICE increasingly uses the criminal legal system to target immigrants, specifically LGBTQ GNC individuals, provide a political history of exclusion and of resistance movements for immigrant rights in the U.S., and offer ways to stop mass deportation. We will discuss the impact of comprehensive immigration reform for LGBTQ GNC people.
