Immigration Documentary Screening

In our nation’s fierce battle over immigration, before Arizona, there was Prince William County, VA. As in Arizona, politicians in this outer suburb of Washington, DC, bowed to popular hysteria and tried to criminalize “looking like an immigrant.”

But the immigrant community and its supporters fought back, successfully overturning the most onerous provisions of the legislation and providing a playbook for other immigrant-rights activists.

“9500 Liberty,” the highly-acclaimed documentary about that Virginia struggle, is the subject of the ADA Education Fund’s February Congressional briefing.  Following the film’s screening, the director, Eric Byler, will be on hand to answer questions from the audience.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 22, Noon-2

WHERE: Rayburn House Office Building (Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street), Room 2456

MORE INFORMATION: 202-785-5980 or will@adaction.org
