Guest speaker: EMMA LOZANO, Chicago Activist
Saul Arellano, 7 years of age, is the son of Elvira Arellano, who has courageously defied inhumane immigration laws by resisting deportation and taking sanctuary at the Methodist Church in Chicago. Saul, her son, is a United States citizen, who like 3.2 million other children, faces the forced separation from his mother, an undocumented immigrant. Elvira has taken up the cry of 600,000 other women who are under deportation orders.
Emma Lozano, Director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, is a Chicago community activist who has taken up the banner of Elvira’s struggle and is coming to Los Angeles to rally greater support.
