Is it really an unreasonable thing to dream?

For this Untold Stories event, our panel will share and discuss the experiences of undocumented peoples, advocacy for Dreamers, and what it is like to live under threat of discovery.

Joining us is Rene Julio, a previously undocumented artist living in Seattle, Israel Herrejon, formerly with the Mexican Consulate of Seattle, and immigration attorney Chelan Crutcher-Herrejon of Crutcher-Herrejon Law Group.


BIMA is following the COVID-19 recommendations and guidance from Kitsap Public Health District, Washington State Department of Health, and the CDC, and will continue to update health and safety policies as needed.
