VOZ will Screen the Premier of "Jornaleros" this Thursday! March 25th at Clinton Street Theatre

VOZ Workers' Rights Education Project and Precarious Egg will be premiering "Jornaleros." Through music, poetry, and art, "Jornaleros" documents the lives and creative work of five Portland day laborers. The film humanizes the controversy about day laborers by showing these workers, first and foremost, as artists and activists in the community.

This short film will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers and some of the day laborers featured in the film.

Following the discussion will be another film, "La Americana", which is a documentary about an undocumented mother and her journey.

Located at: Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street March 25, 7pm
