Immigrants Raising Citizens: Undocumented parents and their children:
Book discussion and Q&A with NYU Steinhardt Professor Hirokazu Yoshikawa
Wednesday, May 3rd
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Community Lounge, Center for Identity + Inclusion, 5710 S. Woodlawn Ave.
There are now nearly four million children born in the United States who have undocumented immigrant parents. In the current debates around immigration reform, policymakers often view immigrants as an economic or labor market problem to be solved, but the issue has a very real human dimension. Immigrant parents without legal status are raising their citizen children under stressful work and financial conditions, with the constant threat of discovery and deportation that may narrow social contacts and limit participation in public programs that might benefit their children. Immigrants Raising Citizens offers a compelling description of the everyday experiences of these parents, their very young children, and the consequences these experiences have on their children’s development. Join us for a book discussion and Q&A with NYU Steinhardt Professor Hirokazu Yoshikawa.
First 40 UChicago students to sign up will get a free copy of Immigrants Raising Citizens! RSVP here:
