Join us for lunch and a special episode screening of “Out of Reach” from the awarding-winning docu-series America Divided. The series focuses on inequality in America through eight episodes investigated by celebrity correspondents.

 As the fate of some 11 million undocumented immigrants remains uncertain, actress America Ferrera heads to Texas, the state with the longest border and home to 1.65 million people living without papers. Ferrera, whose parents and siblings are immigrants from Honduras, understands the challenges faced by the new arrivals to the U.S. fleeing in Central America. In an episode entitled “Out of Reach,” she witnesses the special difficulties for Central American refugees in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, where U.S. Border Patrol checkpoints inside the U.S., many miles from the border, keep undocumented people hemmed-in and place the American dream out of reach.

After the screening, there will be opportunities for dialogue with series director Solly Granatstein and episode producer Rayner Ramirez.

 This session is supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the sponsor of the NAHJ Conference.
