Screening of Documentary "abUSed: The Postville Raid"

Sunday Apr 17, 2011
John B. Davis Lecture Hall, Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

Luis Argueta, award winning director of “The Silence of Neto,” presents his new documentary “abUSed: The Postville Raid,” which weaves together the personal stories of the individuals, the families, and the town directly affected by the events of May 12, 2008. The film presents the human face of immigration, the socioeconomic forces which fuel migration, and serves as a cautionary tale against government abuses of constitutional and human rights.

This screening is part of both the annual "Untold Stories" labor history series organized by the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library and the special series of events, marking the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, entitled "Then and Now: Immigrants, Workers, and Justice," organized by Jewish Community Action.
