House of Seven Gables to host New Immigrant and Refugee Visions Screen&Discuss – 9/19 IN PERSON!

August 5, 2022

The House of the Seven Gables, a colonial mansion turned non-profit museum in Salem Massachusetts, will host a New Immigrant and Refugee Visions Screen&Discuss event September 19 6-7pm, in-person.

The Gables offers educational programming to support their local immigrant community including Adult English Language and Citizenship preparation classes. They engage the wider community through stimulating, thoughtful, facilitated conversations, like this one, on immigration and other social justice issues.

This discussion will commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month with the screening of:

  • She’s an American Childby Rafael DeLeon, about Annabelle — a Dominican ‘DREAMer’ and her undocumented mother.
  • Rhythms of Respect, by Katsyris Rivera-Kientz, about Jorge Arce — a Puerto Rican dancer, musician, educator, and cultural activist.
Rhythms of Respect, by Katsyris Rivera-Kientz

These two films will be a revealing look at two Boston-based stories and the challenges facing migrants and immigrants. Annabelle and her mother, for example, are still waiting for the Biden Administration to follow through on its campaign promise to provide residency for the millions of DREAMers and their families.

Filmmakers, subjects and CSFilm director, Michael Sheridan, will join the discussion.

A year after the Taliban took power, humanitarian needs are rising even as foreign aid has dried up.

During the former Islamic Republic, foreign aid grants funded 75 percent of public spending. Since the Taliban takeover in August 2021, the United States has provided $775 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, but the UN says at least $4.4 billion is needed to address the emergency needs of more than 24 million Afghans – 60 percent of the population.
