"Papers" film screening at MTSU Wednesday night

An announcement from the Delta Iota Chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. at MTSU:
Can you imagine graduating from high school with all of your friends, in a country that may be all you've ever known, only to realize that you do not have the same opportunities as your peers? You do not qualify for financial assistance to pursue that important college education that has been impressed upon you during your high school years, nor will you have an easy time trying to find a job to support yourself...all because of 'Papers'.

The Delta Iota Chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc.

 'Undocumented, uneducated?'

This educational program will focus on the challenges that many immigrant youth face as they graduate high school in the United States and face limited opportunities. Come learn more about the DREAM Act and watch a viewing of the documentary 'Papers'. 'Papers' is the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18 and graduate from high school without legal status. Be touched by real-life stories that will make you want to go out and advocate for change in your community and your nation!

We will begin at 7pm with a presentation on the DREAM Act by the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, followed by the 88-minute feature of 'Papers'. A question/answer session will complete the evening. Come out ready to be educated and inspired!
