DIGEST THIS! Q & A with Allegra Love, Executive Director of the Santa Fe Dreamers Project
SITE brings you a series of short interviews with Allegra Love, who is at the epicenter of the dire immigrant detention dilemma here in New Mexico along with her team at the Santa Fe Dreamers Project. Her incredibly timely talk provides an overview of current immigration policy in the US, focusing on how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting ICE detention centers in our state and beyond. She shares her unique perspective of how detainees are a critical part of the fabric in the considerations of public health in our community and beyond.
Allegra Love Event Trailer
SITE Santa Fe is pleased to present Digest This!, an interdisciplinary series of public programs pairing “bite-sized” talks with a tasting prepared by a local chef. 2020 Digest This! programs invite local experts and innovative chefs to explore the immigrant or refugee experience through their own lives and/or the work they do in our community. Relating to the exhibition, Displaced: Contemporary Artists Confront the Global Refugee Crisis, Digest This! is made possible in part by the New Mexico Humanities Council.
Usually these sold-out events take place in our auditorium, but now that we are all at home, we are adapting our programs and working with individual Digest This! presenters to bring you great content online. SITE takes Digest This! experts and shares their knowledge via our online platforms.
