Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Nov 18, 2011

This weekend, Professor Emeritus and former State Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso will speak at a special screening of the documentary “Why We Come.”  The screening is presented by the Yolo Interfaith Immigration Project and takes place at the International House in Davis on Sunday at 3 P.M.

The film’s official description: “In Por Que Venimos (Why We Come), Latin American migrants living in San Rafael's Canal district tell why they left their homes to endure the arduous journey to El Norte, the United States.  These powerful, often heartbreaking, yet always stirring and inspiring stories offer an intimate look at lives lived at the outer limits of poverty and at the extraordinary courage of ordinary people as they take great risks seeking a better life for their families, especially for their children.”
