  2. Latin@ Coalition-Film Documentary 'Harvest of Empire' »

    September 22, 2014 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

    The documentary focuses on seven countries located in the Latin American regions closest to the U.S. We see the true origins of massive migrations from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Nicaragua.  

    The living history depicted in Harvest of Empire is a moving, inspiring and often heartbreaking tale that must become part of our national conversation about immigration.  Filmmakers hope is to spark civil dialogue and help to:

    Challenge the negative stereotypes of Latino immigrants: Raise awareness about the true origins of the Latino presence in the U.S. Focus attention on the contributions of Latino immigrants to our society Expose the harsh language being used to describe Latinos in the media Develop a deeper understanding for the real-life impact of U.S. foreign policy

    Be sure to stick around for the Q&A with Dr. Mara Ostfeld from the School of Public Policy, Dr. Jorge Delva and Dr. David Cordova.

  6. When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: Why We Need a Women's Economic Agenda »

    September 23, 2014 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

    Increasing the economic security of women and their families is not only critical, but is the subject of several bills in Congress and parallel efforts in state legislatures across the country. In an election year in which the women's vote may be an important determinant of the results, a women's economic agenda has particular saliency.

    Come learn about the importance of this agenda and its critical components, including:

    The Paycheck Fairness Act to deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their wages to coworkers.

    The Strong Start for America's Children Act to fund high-quality early childhood education programs, which have been demonstrated to provide a huge return on investment.

    The Fair Minimum Wage Act to help close the gender wage gap and increase pay for more than 15 million working women.
