WET: A DACAmented Journey

As I mentioned in class, I want to make sure that you all know about this upcoming performance by Alex Alpharaoh on January 31st at 7pm,
Below, I share the announcement from my colleague, Dr. Noriega.
I am thrilled to announce that Alex Alpharaoh will be coming to the College to perform his one-man show about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which chronicles his journey as an undocumented immigrant in the turbulent politics of our nation. This critically acclaimed production comes to Wooster in the midst of a legislative and public battle over the future of DACA and the approximately 800,000 young immigrants whose futures were upended when the current administration ended Obama’s executive order. This event offers a unique opportunity to educate our community about the personal effects of divisive and racist politics and the role that the arts can play in advocating for a more inclusive and just society. For these reasons, I hope that you can join me in advertising:
