The Human Rights and Humanitarian Policy Concentration at SIPA, in collaboration with HRE USA, the Human Rights Working Group, and ARTE, invites you to join us for a panel conversation on immigration and detention in the United States.

Immigration policy and mass incarceration represent today one of the main sites of human rights abuses and violations in the US. The criminalization of displaced peoples, in its turn, is part of a broader context of securitization of borders worldwide, a notion that contributes to and strengthens regimens of surveillance and detention advanced by States. With that in mind, the panel seeks to bring together community-based artists and organizers, academics, immigration advocates and attorneys to discuss insights and intersections between their work. The discussion will also explore the ways in which community art can be mobilized as a form of resistance, and the event will allow attendees to support policy advocacy and engage in community art.This event is co-sponsored by: the Human Rights and Humanitarian Policy Concentration at SIPA, the Human Rights Working group, Art and Resistance Through Education (ARTE), and Human Rights Educators (HRE) USA.
