Dr. Piñeros Shields will discuss how gender, race, and class explain the development of U.S. immigration policies as a context for understanding the experiences of low-wage women workers without immigration papers. Come hear stories of the courageous battles these women are waging and winning. Learn how these battles shed light on the ways 21st century neoliberal capitalism thrives on the exploitation of poor immigrant women and builds an ever growing system of mass incarceration.
Dr. Alexandra Piñeros-Shields, Executive Director of Essex County Community Organization and Brandeis Professor
