Screening of the documentary “If I Could Stay”

If I Could Stay“. It is the story of Jeanette Vizguerra and Ingrid Latorre, two undocumented mothers in deportation proceedings. The documentary will be presented in Denver on May 10 and 11, as this date is celebrated in most Latin American countries as Mother’s Day. This is the story of two mothers, from Mexico and Peru who continue the fight to stay with their sons, daughters, families and their communities.

? 4:00 – 7:00 P.M.
? 3131 Osceola Street, Denver, CO. 80212 (Fellowship Hall at the Highlands United Methodist Church).
?? $15.00 (Via or at the door).
Jeanette founded, in 2014, along with other allies the Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition in order to have one more resource to continue resisting their deportations. Along the way other undocumented immigrants used that resource to resist and keep their families together. Jeanette had to enter sanctuary on two occasions. First in 2017 and the second in 2019.

The purpose of this documentary is educational and to see the transformation of the movement over the years. To evaluate what needs to be improved in the impacted communities as well as Faith Allies and the community of allies.

The funds raised will be used to take this documentary to other places and states to educate, organize and promote the vote. It is not yet known who the new president will be, however it is anticipated that there will be difficult times ahead for the immigrant community. This is an important time to reorganize the movement and the struggles for immigrant rights.

There will be music, jewelry and arts and crafts vendors.

We look forward to seeing you, thank you in advance for your support! ?

Special thanks to Highlands United Methodist Church, Denver for facilitating the Fellowship Hall space for this screening.
