“Transborder Gendered Violence and Resistance: Indigenous Women Migrants Seeking U.S. Asylum”
a talk by Dr. Lynn Stephen, Distinguished Professor of Arts and Sciences, Department of Anthropology, and Director of the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) at the University of Oregon

More than 200 community members visited the Latino Roots exhibit on tour from the UO Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies at Festival Informativo, which took place May 4, 2014, at the civic center in Independence, Oregon. An estimated 2,450 civic center visitors were exposed to the bilingual exhibit over the course of three months.
The exhibit, which was originally displayed at the Lane County Historical Museum in 2009-2010, was duplicated using funds from SELCO Community Credit Union. The portable exhibit features 15 panels containing information on Latino history and demographics in Oregon, along with photographs and stories about seven immigrant families. The Latino Roots Project also includes videos and bilingual curriculum materials.
