Young activists with the Immigrant Youth Justice League (IYJL) continue to dream, in spite of the DREAM Act's recent defeat. Short for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, this bill would have given undocumented students who arrived in the US as children a chance to earn permanent residency in the country.

Join us for an intimate conversation with members of (IYJL), whose efforts have brought national attention to the plight of undocumented students.

Free and open to the public. Reservations are required. For more information, call 312.422.5580.
 

Café Society is a series of conversations where families, friends, neighbors, and citizens come together to discuss current events and other important political and social issues. By engaging in the meaningful exchange of ideas and perspectives, these conversations enliven the core of democracy and empower the public.

Through discussion, we seek to foster a robust civil society, cohesive nteractive communities, and a critical examination of our media. We invite people to engage one another in discussion from all points of view, dig deeper into a given subject, and help create a stronger democratic society.  A program of The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council.

If you need a sign interpreter or require other arrangements to fully participate, please call 312.422.5580. For parking locations near the facility, please visit ChicagoParkingMap.com.
