Immigration Nation Watch Party (Episode 1)
Nov 15 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Starting November 15, JCUA Immigration Committee members will be hosting watch parties of the docu-series Immigration Nation. This 6-part series is a deep dive into the immigration system in the United States, including unparalleled access to footage of ICE operations. Each Sunday afternoon we’ll watch one episode together and then have a 30-minute guided discussion. We hope these watch parties will help our community understand and prepare to disrupt the injustices of the American immigration system.

Immigration Nation Screening 2 @ Netflix Party/Zoom
Nov 22 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

This series takes a deep dive into the immigration system in the United States, including unparalleled access to ICE operations. We hope it can be a powerful tool for our knowledge on the US immigration system and how it intersects with systems of incarceration and criminalization in our country.

On Sundays November 15, November 22, and 4 other dates TBD  from 3pm-4:30, we will use Netflix party to view this series together. Please sign up here to join us. We will send out instructions on downloading Netflix Party and the call links to those who register. Each week will consist of one episode of the series, a brief centering exercise, and a guided discussion. If you would like some assistance in understanding the Netflix Party extension, we will be hosting a 30 minute tech support zoom call before each viewing.

We hope this series can be a powerful tool in understanding the unjust system we find ourselves in so we can be ready to disrupt it.
