Latinx Heritage Month Kickoff event: Singing Our Way to FreedomWednesday, September 15th, 202105:00 PM - 07:00 PMOtherZoom
Singing Our Way to Freedom chronicles the life and music of Ramon "Chunky" Sanchez from humble beginnings as a California farmworker to receiving the Library of Congress' highest musical honors. As a young man in the 1970s, Chunky joined the picket lines in California and became Cesar Chavez’s favorite musician. His journey is a remarkable lens on a time when young Mexican Americans became Chicanos. Chunky’s music inspired folks to stand up and speak truth to power. His arc of transformation from marginalized farm kid to charismatic social activist shows how one person can mobilize people to change the world, reminding us that the battle for freedom has to be fought anew by every generation.

The vast majority of the nearly 60,000 who have already arrived in the U.S. are being housed temporarily in military bases or other sites around the country. This panel provides an opportunity to consider the context of forced migration from Afghanistan over the past twenty years, as well as to better understand what it means to be resettled in the United States through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. Focusing on Connecticut as a model, the panelists will highlight the role communities play in welcoming Afghans and aiding in successful resettlement.
