The Dream is Now is a documentary that follows four undocumented youth in America and focuses on the personal stories of dreamers and their families. It calls for common sense reform that gives all undocumented immigrants the chance to earn their citizenship and contribute fully to society.
Please join the Upsilon Gamma Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity as they host the first Denver screening of The Dream is Now on campus.
If you are interested in federal comprehensive immigration reform, if you want to learn more about it, or if this systemic issue has affected you and your loved ones-- come share your story. The film screening will take place on Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Davis Auditorium, Sturm Hall. A panel discussion will follow. This event is expected to sell out; please reserve your free tickets here in advance.

Dr. Scott Adams is a Denver psychologist who has spent a number of years working with senior citizens. Over that time he has come to recognize that there are certain issues and topics that these folks don't necessarily share with their children. We'll have an opportunity to have a conversation with Scott and learn how we might be more supportive and understanding of the challenges they face. "Care for the Ages" is an ongoing program from Religious & Spiritual Life and the Graduate School of Social Work aimed at those of us who may be "sandwiched" between aging parents and children of our own, or who are simply watching our (grand) parents get older. Join the discussion in the Commerce Room in Driscoll Center north.
The final installment will feature six plays: Trial by Jury, The Unwanted, Oh, the Humanity!, The Fourth Mrs. Phillips, Lynette at 3am and Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen.
