The Criminalization of Latinx Immigrants and its Relationship with Black Lives Matter
October 13, 2020
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
The panel will explore the relationship between mass incarceration and immigrant detention. It will explore how the dynamics of racism, anti-Blackness, xenophobia, and transphobia are manifested through these penal systems. By exploring this history, we'll see why it is so important for the Latinx community to embrace and amplify the Black Lives Matter movement.
• The interconnectedness of mass incarceration and immigrant detention.
• Historical torture and abuse of communities that has led to oppressive legal systems.
• Crime policies of the 1990s that exacerbated the criminalization of immigrants, Black, and brown communities.
