Nicole Salgado, co-author of Amor and Exile, will speak as part of a panel on immigration reform hosted by Democrats Abroad on Thursday, March 25, 2021, at 2:30-3:30pm Eastern Time (US & Canada). Nicole will talk about her experience in immigration exile, as well as the need to include mixed-status families like hers in immigration reform efforts, like the American Families United Act, the Citizenship Act of 2021, or the Senate versions of bills that just passed the House. Join us!

In solidarity with event speakers, and in the spirit of building public awareness about the impact of immigration bans on families like Nicole and Margo’s in a time when it’s crucial to contact your legislators, we made the Kindle version of Amor and Exile available for free this week, from Thursday, March 25th until Saturday, March 27th. You can download the Kindle version at this link: http://bit.ly/amor4demsabroad. The paperback version is available via our page on Amazon.
From the event website: The Immigration Reform package presented by President Biden can create a better and more stable future for millions of undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers, but it will require efforts from all of us. This month two key immigration bills are going through the House: the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act. Join us for a discussion on these two bills and topics related to them. We will take a closer look and discuss actions we could take with the help of our guest speakers. This event is hosted by the Global Hispanic Caucus, in partnership with the AAPI, LGBTQ and Youth Caucuses, DA Canada, DA Spain and DA Germany.
