Latino/a Heritage Month - St Louis, MO

In October we headed to St Louis, MO, for a few events organized by the Missouri Immigrant and Refugee Advocates (MIRA) and the St Louis Interfaith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA) including a fundraiser for both groups that was held at Bethel Lutheran Church. Gilbert Bailon, the Editorial Page Editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch provided opening remarks and the spirited post-screening discussion was moderated by Rebecca Rivas of The St. Louis American.

The following day, Professor Joel Jennings hosted a Community Screening of Made in L.A. at St. Louis University in an event that was supported by the US Census. The auditorium was packed with students, and we had a vibrant Q & A.

On the third day, we had a great screening at UMSL, where Robert's sister Sonya is a professor and directs the Center for Neurodynamics. The event was organized by Deborah Cohen, from the Department of History and the Institute for Women's and Gender Studies.

Mundo Latino wrote a beautiful review of the film (in Spanish)!
