Movie screening and panel discussion with the filmmaker Cynthia Martinez.

First Voice Generation follows the stories of three Latino high school students in Holland, Michigan, during an unprecedented global pandemic year. Each student struggles with their identity growing up in a historically Dutch community, feeling that they don't belong because they are children of Mexican immigrants. They each dream of being the first in their family to go college, but a year of challenges ensue with virtual learning, and the realization that the cost of affording college seems impossible

Pizza and beverages will be provided.
