Livingston Live Webinar: Race and Immigration in the U.S.
with Elizabeth Escobedo
Associate Professor of History Elizabeth Escobedo will discuss the ways in which race plays a central role in the history of immigration in the twentieth century United States. Escobedo will be joined by Sarah Jackson, executive director of Casa de Paz, a local organization that assists detained and recently released migrants in Aurora, Colorado, and alumna Carly Howenstein (BA ’19), a participant in DU’s Casa de Paz Learning Community, which gives students the opportunity to take immigration courses in service-learning partnership with Casa de Paz. Together, they’ll discuss the importance of engaging students and community members in understanding immigration history, as well as the implications for current immigrants’ everyday lives and experiences.
