Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit.
Recently, Donald Trump rescinded this program protecting its recipients by no longer processing applications, leaving it's fate to Congress to devise a plan in six months for the remainder of existing applicants. DACA recipients are your friends, your classmates, your neighbors, and your co-workers.
Please join us for an afternoon of performances standing in solidarity with those affected by DACA. All proceeds will benefit local youth programs at El Pueblo, Inc..

This month we are partnering with the Youth Organizing Institute to screen “13th”, directed by Ava DuVernay, on Friday, August 18th. The film explores the intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States. Slavery has been perpetuated in practices since the end of the American Civil War through criminalizing behavior and enabling police to arrest poor freedmen and force them to work for the state under convict leasing; suppression of African Americans by disenfranchisement, lynchings and Jim Crow; the war on drugs and, by the late 20th century, mass incarceration of people of color in the United States. The film examines the prison-industrial complex and the emerging detention-industrial complex, demonstrating how much money is being made by corporations from such incarceration. You can see the trailer here. It will be an intergenerational event. We will provide popcorn and water. Folks can bring their own snacks for themselves or to share. We will have Spanish subtitles available. We will provide child care (if needed, letting us know at least one week in advance. The movie will be screened at El Pueblo, 2321 Crabtree Blvd, Ste 105, Ralieigh, NC 27604, from 5:30-8:00 pm. For more information or to request childcare (please request one week in advance), contact Michelle via email or call her at 919-835-1525 ext. 113.
We had several anti-immigrant bills this year, a couple of “decent” ones, but what really happened during this year’s long session? Driving Permits? In-State Tuition?
Join us at El Pueblo on Saturday, July 29 @ 9:30 for a debrief session. We will discuss the implications of these bills and how we can be better prepared for next year’s session.
We will provide child care, lunch, and lots of information!
"No Más Bebés” tells the story of Mexican immigrant mothers who sued doctors, the state, and the U.S. government after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County General Hospital during the 1970s. This film lifts up the contribution of Chicana activists who sought to redefine reproductive politics as including the human right to bear a child.

This month we will be watching “For the Bible Tells Me So”. Through the experiences of five very “normal”, very Christian, very American families -- including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson -- we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child. “For the Bible Tells Me So” offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity. You can view the trailer here. It will be an intergenerational event. We will provide popcorn and water. Folks can bring their own snacks for themselves or to share. We will have Spanish subtitles available. We will provide child care if confirmed at least one week in advance. The movie will be screened at El Pueblo on Friday, June 23rd, from 5:30-8:00 pm.
