We hope you’ll join us on Tue, Apr 3 from 12-1pm in WCC 3012 for lunch with the HLS students who traveled to Alabama during spring break. (Read the blog post and watch the video to get an introduction to their work.) The students will discuss what they learned about the state’s new anti-immigration law HB 56, the impact of the law on Alabamans, and the growing movement in the state to seek repeal. Lunch provided.
