Note: Special Musical Guest TBA


A roundtable and musical performance hosted by Josh Kun (USC) and Alicia Schmidt-Camacho (Yale). Since the 2006 immigration marches, music and art have played a renewed role in voicing, shaping, and critiquing contemporary debates around immigration reform and activism, a role with a long history in U.S. political and cultural life. Los Angeles is now, as it has always been, a key hub for artistic and musical interventions into these stories and struggles. This event will focus on the political and artistic work of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and their collaborations with musicians (La Santa Cecilia, Aloe Blacc), filmmakers (Alex Rivera), visual artists, and their own house band, Los Jornaleros del Norte. The event will begin with a conversation about these issues and will be followed by a live, interactive musical performance by Los Jornaleros del Norte.

*Voluntary donations at the door, with proceeds benefitting the National Day Laborer Organizing Network
