In this multidisciplinary installation, an ensemble of artists offer a response to the detentions and deportations affecting local residents.  In partnership with Pan Left Productions, Derechos Humanos and Jason Aragon, Dreams/Sueños illuminates the stories from Las Promatoras, undocumented women living in the shadow of police militarization.
