Saturday, March 24, 2007 • 9:00 AM

PlaticArte brings together artists, scholars, and community activists for a full day of open discussion on immigration issues with Teatro Vivo's bilingual theater production of "La Víctima" as a context for the conversation. "La Víctima", originally written by El Teatro De La Esperanza, tells the story of suffering, injustice and fragile hope in the lives of Mexican immigrants in the United States, and it reminds us that we continue to live inside that history.
