Nina Ebner, an advocate with the Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee (DMSC)/Fronterizx Fianza Fund, will unpack recent developments in Juarez/El Paso during an hour-long workshop. In it, she will discuss her work with DMSC, an abolitionist collective of femmes and queer individuals, fighting for more equitable immigration policy, the demilitarization of border communities and an end to migrant detention. The talk will be followed with time for Q&A addressing how space-and place-is fought for.

The workshop, as part of the "Spanish Narratives of Migration" Seminar will take place via Zoom on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 3:05-4:20. It is open to the public but will require pre-registration and a password to join.
