Women (Tinkham Veale University Center, Suite 248).
Elias Rosenfeld, a Brandeis University student, Dreamer and
advocate for immigration reform, will present at the event.

Dreamer and a member of the Jewish and LGBT communities—intersect and inform
his activist work.
This event is free and open to the community. Attendees are
encouraged to bring a lunch; drinks and dessert will be provided.
