Carrying On: An Open Letter to Latino Immigrants

Carrying On: An Open Letter to Latino Immigrants

By:
03/17/2017

Before his joint session speech to Congress on Feb. 28, Donald Trump called for a “compromise” on immigration. This move came in light of increased U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and deportations. But while Trump built much of his campaign around the promise to have ICE deport the “bad hombres,” these raids have…

I’m three or four years old, holding up a popsicle stick cross I made in day care for my mom to see. I had colored it using pink washable marker and draped fake ivy around the arms. She smiles and puts it in a craft supply box. Over the years, it’ll be shuffled deeper and…

When most of us hear the words “gender equality,” our minds jump to women’s issues. We automatically conjure images of feminist rallies, calls for equal pay, and ownership of reproductive rights. Despite our tendency to conflate gender equality with women’s issues—a simple misunderstanding—we must acknowledge that, as a community, we are leaving at least 50…

While the CEO of Uber has called for an investigation into this harassment, which Fowler said was not limited…

On the well traversed walk from ICC to the Front Gates, it’s hard to miss perhaps the most famous, distinctive, photographed, and climbed of Georgetown’s trees: “The King” Green Ash. Even the most reclusive students can recall a time when the low limbs of this giant enticed them. A time when the grandeur of this…

I have always been in love with movies. Beautiful, gritty, or suspenseful, it doesn’t matter. When done right, a film has the power to place me in a different world, a world more dazzling, more terrifying, or more outlandish than the one in which I reside. A soaring piece of music, a particularly cutting dialogue…

I’m bad at activism. I acknowledge it. I read articles but don’t share them. I hear about, for example, Donald Trump’s executive order on the Dakota Access Pipeline and skim friends’ “Organize—tonight!” posts, and I scroll past, ashamed, thinking of my bag of potatoes and head of broccoli and frying pan waiting for me to…
