The 1.5 generation – comprising immigrants who arrive in the US as children and younger teens – holds a unique place within the immigrant diaspora experience. What roles do they play at home or outside it? What languages do they speak in given situations? Does 1.5-ness affect who gets their votes – or their hands in love or marriage?

On Tuesday, March 27, The Crawford Family Forum invites you to a lively, audience-inclusive discussion of such questions and the nuances of the “immigrant experience/generation spectrum” with moderator Leslie Berestein Rojas (KPCC’s “Multi-American” blogger/reporter) and guests Mary Danico Yu (Cal Poly Pomona, Sociology) and Leisy Abrego (UCLA, Chicana/o Studies). Come learn from the panel, and one another, about a phenomenon that affects the lives of many Angelenos in-between and all around.

6:30pm - Doors Open
7:00pm - Program

Admission is FREE, but RSVP's are required.
