Join the Center for American Progress, Junta and many others for a panel discussion with the Freedom Riders from 1961 and current DREAM activists to hear how the struggles compare and what can be learned from a 50 year old student led strategy.
50 years ago a group of students rode buses, challenged the law, were beaten, went to prison by the hundreds, and changed America forever.
Today student activists seek to make America better once again, this time by fighting for immigrant rights.
It's going to be a great discussion. Join us.
This event is free.
