Susan Cohen: Journeys from There to Here
Monday, January 31
Susan Cohen is an internationally recognized immigration lawyer known for her work fighting the 2017 Travel Ban and representing hundreds of thousands of foreign students in litigation opposing dangerous COVID-related student visa policies. Susan visits City of Asylum to discuss her new collection of essays, Journeys from There to Here, a collection that walks us alongside her clients as they share their incredible journeys coming to America while overcoming unimaginable obstacles abroad.
Sprinkled with amusing anecdotes, tense junctures, and heartwarming segments, Journeys from There to Here brings us front and center at the courtroom learning about US immigration policies and systems-which often become an immigrant’s greatest hurdle. Susan is joined by Gazmend Kapllani whose story is prominently featured in Susan’s work.
(Run time: 75 minutes). There are two ways to watch the program: in-person at our venue Alphabet City or live-streamed online. Please review our Covid-19 safety policies for indoor programs @ Alphabet City.
