DOCUMENTARY MONDAYS - THE FIGHT

Join Professor Katrina Sims and Dean of Students Gabrielle St. Légeras they host the second in a series of “Documentary Mondays”.  Each scheduled Monday will feature a documentary, which will be the foundation to further discussion examining the theme of the night. This Monday’s theme will focus on The Fight which gives an inside look at the legal battles that five lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union are facing during the Trump administration’s historic assault on civil liberties - from separating families at the border, to rolling back transgender, reproductive, and voting rights.
