"A month-long program at International House Davis that features personal stories of deportation in order to humanize what is often a discussion based more on policy and statistics has been extended into December.

Humanizing Deportation features a multimedia exhibition of more than 50 first-person narratives of deportation, along with portraits, silkscreen posters and original drawings.

The work has been on display at I-House since early October and has been accompanied by events and workshops over the last several weeks, including training on supporting immigrants as well as a forum where local organizations who serve the immigrant community discussed their programs and offered ways for local residents to get involved."
