Give your brain some food for thought with Allied Media Projects’ Speakers Series, which consists of a collection of four virtual events called “Bloom.” The free events include a short-film premiere, artist discussions, special guests, youth-empowering discussions, ancestral ceremonial practices, and various artistic collaborations. As part of the series, Allied Media will host a panel called “Undocumented & Unafraid,” which will explore “issues within the immigration system” and looks to “empower undocumented immigrant” and what a world without borders might look like. The discussion will be led by a mix of media-makers and immigration justice leaders, Patrice Lawrence of the UndocuBlack Network, Jennicet Gutierrez, Damon Williams, and Daniel Kisslinger. During the events, AMP will provide American Sign Language (ASL), speech-to-text, and live Spanish translation.

Undocumented & Unafraid takes place on Thursday, May 13 at 5 p.m.;; Registration is free.
