Film Screening: “Witness at Tornillo”
January 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
All are invited to a special screening of a new documentary called “Witness at Tornillo” in St. Ann’s parish hall on Saturday, January 4, at 3:00 pm. “Witness at Tornillo,” a one-hour film, is about the act of individual protest in response to the cruelty of family separation and the imprisoning of migrant children. The film traces Brooklynite Josh Rubin’s unlikely quest in 2018 to force the shut down of the infamous “tent city” detention center in Tornillo, Texas, and the for-profit child prison in Homestead, Florida, in 2019. Both facilities no longer hold children. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Margaret Seiler, a local activist who works with Rubin and others in the Brooklyn group Don’t Separate Families. Please join us.
