‘Finding Home’ screening + Free Panel Discussion

FINDING HOME is a documentary web series chronicling the painstaking efforts of LGBT immigrants to build and define a home in Los Angeles.

SCHEDULE:

• 12:00pm – Doors Open
• 12:30pm – Panel Discussion (THE PANEL DISCUSSION IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC)
• 1:30pm – Film Starts

PANEL DISCUSSION:

What is going on, America? What is happening in our backyard, Miami? Aqua Foundation for Women brings together immigration experts to help us understand fact from fake, policy from hearsay. The Wall, Dreamers, Border Patrol, Detention, Immigration Reform, ICE, and more.

Miami immigration specialists provide a State of the Union on what is happening in US Immigration policy. We will provide a summary of current issues and laws, and tackle your questions. What is really happening in Homestead? How will the new policies impact your business, family, and personal life? Should you be worried? How can you get involved?

As Miami’s only LBT women’s organization, our panel discussion will focus on women, family, and LGBT perspectives. Our panelists are women leaders from law firms, journalism, and the non-profit sectors.
All members of the South Florida community are invited to this FREE conversation!

PANELISTS:

• Christine Alden, Esq. – Business Immigration Attorney

• Patricia Hernandez – Immigration Attorney and Aqua Board Member

• Rebecca Sanchez-Roig – Former Government Attorney & Family Immigration Law Specialist.

FILM:

Roughly 65 million people are displaced globally — including tens of thousands of LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers. Since assuming office, Trump has cut refugee admissions from 110,000 to 50,000. In this timely and inspiring docu-series, explore the journeys of three queer immigrants in Los Angeles who have escaped persecution and violence in their native countries. Afterward, join us for an urgent discussion with the subjects, along with experts on all facets of this growing crisis, from mental health to community building, advocacy and policy.

Proceeds from this screening will be donated to Americans for Immigrant Justice to help support the work they do to reunite families and children detained in Homestead.
