The Diana Center, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027 LL 104

Join us for a screening & conversation on Las Abogadas, a documentary about women immigration attorneys on the front lines of the migrant crisis.


  • Elora Mukherjee, Jerome L. Greene Clinical Professor of Law at Columbia University
  • Charlene D’Cruz, Immigration Attorney, Las Abogadas film
  • Nara Milanich, Professor & Director of the Center of Mexico and Central America at Columbia University

Las Abogadas centers around brave women attorneys standing up to insurmountable odds. Beginning in 2018, Rebecca Eichler, Mulu Alemayehu, Charlene D’Cruz and Jodi Goodwin find their usual legal tools being systematically twisted, thwarted, and pulled out from under their critical work by the United States Government’s chaotic, anti-immigrant policy changes.

The film illustrates these women and their clients' heartbreaking and heartwarming refugee stories.
