You are invited to join us on Wednesday, November 3rd from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for a preview screening of “American Exile,” a film about brothers Manuel and Valente Valenzuela who volunteered and fought in Vietnam and were then deported fifty years later. The event will take place in the Ventana Ballroom, located inside the Memorial Union on ASU’s Tempe campus. The event will also be live streamed via Zoom should you wish to attend virtually.

Panelists Adam Estle, Vice President of Field and Constituencies at the National Immigration Forum, Tomas Robles, Co-Executive Director of Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), Bardis Vakili, Senior Staff Attorney for ACLU San Diego and Imperial Counties and John Valadez, documentary filmmaker, will discuss issues surrounding our veterans and immigration.
