THE ARTISTS DESCRIBE THEIR WORK:  “Martha Razo is an average American girl.  She likes walks on the beach, fireworks and all the things an American girl loves. She has achieved academic success at a university and works hard.  However, her life is full of obstacles.  She is one of 11 million undocumented Americans.  MY DREAM ACT – written by Martha Razo and Cecilie Keenan – takes the viewer on a journey through Mexican/American History and Martha’s own personal story.  What does it mean to be an undocumented immigrant?  How has history evolved over the years?  Who belongs here?  Moving, funny, insightful: MY DREAM ACT is one young woman’s journey navigating the laws of her adopted country and her ever-changing status.”

FRONTERA: Artists Crossing Borders is a project of the Chicago Network for Justice and Peace: www.chicagonetworkjp.org.
FRONTERA creates and produces plays based on the narratives of people forced to migrate across borders -- all types of borders -- in order to escape violence and to make a meaningful life for themselves and their loved ones.
MY DREAM ACT is co-sponsored by the following Loyola University Chicago organizations:  Ann Ida Gannon Center for Women and Leadership; Center for the Human Rights of Children; Emeriti Faculty Caucus.

A group of Nursing School retirees -- and friends -- met recently for lunch. It's wonderful to stay connected.
