Fridays on the Patio | Migrant Records and Mutual Aid: A workshop on finding im/migration records in U.S. government archives + a conversation about mutual aid in NYC
Friday, April 21, 2023, 3:00 - 5:00 pm
KJCC, 53 Washington Square S, NY 10012
Food from La Morada.
Join us for an exciting event about migration, archives, and mutual aid!
In the auditorium, Sibylle Fischer, Ellen Noonan, and Bárbara Pérez Curiel from NYU’s Migrant Records Lab will lead a discussion on finding and deciphering im/migration records, and how to use them to help im/migrant communities reclaim their histories. Professor Ángeles Donoso Macaya from CUNY and Marco Saavedra and Natalia Méndez from the South-Bronx restaurant and mutual aid kitchen La Morada will introduce their project, “Archives in Common: Migrant Practices/ Knowledges/Memory,” part of the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research (The Graduate Center/CUNY).
On the Patio, Marco Saavedra and Natalia Méndez will guide a conversation about their mission as a mutual aid kitchen, all while giving the community a taste of their home-made Oaxacan specialties.
Fridays on the Patio started in Fall 2021 as a space for community, conversation and food to share and enjoy. The programs are student-centered, but open to all.
