Julie Schwietert Collazo

Type of Event: Film and Q&A

Mothers separated from their children at the U.S. border and the grassroots initiative that, against all odds, reunites those families. When a Guatemalan mother seeking asylum was separated from her kids under the Zero Tolerance Policy, a Facebook post by a mom in Queens coalesced into a movement as thousands of like-minded women across the US refused to stand by quietly. Immigrant Families Together was born - a rapid response group committed to doing what the government couldn't - or wouldn't do: reunite parents with their children separated by the Zero Tolerance Policy. Following the screening, please join us for a live Q&A with Immigrant Families Together founders (and subjects of the film) Julie  Schwietert-Collazo and Francisco Collazo.
