Made in L.A. used to draw solidarity towards immigrants and action in Stamford, CT

Last Sunday November 23, Made in L.A. screened at the Ferguson Public Library in Stamford, CT. The screening was sponsored by CRISOL, the Coalition of Residents and Immigrants in Solidarity, and it resonates profoundly with the work with we're doing to use Made in L.A. as a tool, to increase sensitivity and to humanize the stories of the millions of immigrants here in the United States.

We love the description of the Q&A in these two newspapers: "When Beatrice Chodosh and Ana Maria Badash set out to screen a movie about sweatshops, they hoped the film would change the way people think about immigration... The women met their goal Sunday... the movie inspired viewers to have compassion for immigrants, who often leave their families behind and work hard under poor conditions... ‘Some people got really emotional. They felt for those women,' Chodosh said". Read more at Stamford Advocate (in English).

The Spanish language press also picked up the story: "En el foro, moderado por Lisa Bergmann, de Crisol, varios presentes contaron las vivencias de inmigrantes allegadas a su círculo y hasta la forma como los mal llamados medios de comunicación social local, se vuelven cómplices de la explotación y el abuso". Read more at La Voz Hispana (in Spanish).
