I’ve Got Monday’s on my Mind…

We’ve got a great lineup of events  happening in The Ames Library this week.

Tonight (Monday, 10/27), Beckman Auditorium, 7pm – Undocumented, Unafraid, & Unapologetic w/ Antonio Gutiérrez: Fighting for Immigrant Rights with Dignity in Chicago and Beyond with Antonio Gutierrez of Centro Autónomo de Albany Park, Chicago and Mexico Solidarity Network.

Since 2011, Antonio has been part of the immigration rights movement as an organizer with IYJL, an undocumented-led organization formed in 2009 in Chicago, with both undocumented youth and allies. Antonio recently joined the Centro Autónomo/Mexico Solidarity Network as the lead organizer for the Casas del Pueblo Community Land Trust, a housing rights movement based in the Albany Park, Chicago. He has a professional bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology. Want to learn more? Check out the event page!
