From the organizer

Immigration lawyer and Voice of Witness editor Corinne Goria discusses immigrant rights issues, especially concerning labor laws and the right to rest.

Inspired by the exhibition Sabbath: The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational, The Museum presents a series of gallery chats that explore labor and rest, our right to rest, and the long legal battles that entitled workers to an 8-hour day and weekend.

Corinne Goria is the editor of Invisible Hands: Voices from the Global Economy (Voice of Witness) and Assistant Editor of Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives (McSweeney's 2008), a collection of oral histories from undocumented immigrants in the United States that has been featured in The Guardian, on NPR, and in other news outlets.

Presented by Contemporary Jewish Museum
