How are students raising questions and demanding action around identity and collective memory?

Don’t miss two documentary short films that highlight the work of students who are speaking up for change. One group of mostly Mexican-American students seeks to repatriate General Santa Anna’s prosthetic leg and address the legacy of the Mexican-American war. A second group of students confronts anti-immigrant sentiment in their library catalog that becomes a flashpoint in the Capitol Hill immigration debate.
