Papers the Movie: Stories of Undocumented Youth

This event took place on:
Thursday, September 30, 7:30 - 9:30pm

KPCC and the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley, with co-hosted ACLU Pasadena and Latino Heritage, for a screening of Papers the Movie: Stories of Undocumented Youth. With only 500 screenings of the movie hosted around the country so far, this is a rare opportunity to join a conversation on a relevant and pressing issue. Papers is the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18 without legal status. There are approximately 2 million undocumented children who were born outside the U.S. and raised in this country. These are young people who were educated in American schools, hold American values, know only the U.S. as home and who, upon high school graduation, find there are no options for them in America. For more information about the movie, please visit: The YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley exists for the elimination of racism and the empowerment of women.
