Recruited to, then Deported from, Mississippi: A FB Live conversation with Angela Stuesse & Dany Vargas

Join us on FB Live tonight for a conversation about why so many immigrants workers came to work in Mississippi poultry plants and how, once settled, they found themselves the targets of anti-immigrant aggression. We talk with UNC professor Angela Stuesse who has written about the years she spent organizing migrant labor in the Mississippi poultry industry, and to Dany Vargas who was arrested in Mississippi and nearly deported when she spoke out about her brother and her father's deportation in 2017. Please join us to discuss this very live issue - how we got here, what's happening on the ground, where we go from here.
