IJPC is excited to announce a new collaboration with Waterwell, a civic-minded theater company from New York City, to bring you “Seeking Safety: The Flores Exhibits.

Join IJPC as we watch and listen to clips from The Flores Exhibits featuring first-hand stories of children held in detention facilities at the U.S. / Mexico border.

  • Esther M. Claros Berlioz, PhD
  • Sarah Madrigal, LISW
