March 2 with Arlington Sister City – The Roots of the Crisis

The humanitarian crisis of immigration at the US-Mexico border is in the 
news every day, but we rarely hear why conditions are so dire in Central 
America that thousands of individuals and families are risking their 
lives and leaving their homes to journey north. Please join us on 
Saturday, March 2 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Community Room of the 
Robbins Library, 700 Mass Ave in Arlington. We will watch the 
award-winning documentary, Harvest of Empire, and have a discussion with 
Patricia Montes, Executive Director of the immigrant rights organization 
Centro Presente. Sponsored by the Arlington-Teosinte Sister City 
Project, Centro Presente, International Institute of New England, ArCS 
Cluster, Arlington International Film Festival and the Robbins Library's 
Arlington Reads Together program. Free of charge. For more information, 
contact bethsoltzberg at gmail.com <mailto:bethsoltzberg at gmail.com>.

"[Harvest of Empire] raises a very important moral question, and one 
that rarely enters into the immigration debate: If America is 
responsible for destabilizing a country, what is our role when the 
country's citizens suffer as a result?" - Washington Post
