Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie)
by Mikaela Shwer

Foothill College’s Family Engagement Institute is hosting a screening of the documentary Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas A Nadie). The screening (with Spanish subtitles) will be followed by a panel discussion with Angy Rivera, Maria Yolanda Rivera, and producer Alexandra Nikolchev. There will be an opportunity for the audience to record stories of being undocumented for StoryCorps. Attendees can RSVP to the event here.

Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas A Nadie)’s Conversation Starter: Angy finds that she can’t do things that her peers take for granted, like find a job, get on a plane or obtain financial aid for college. She says, “We get so focused on the legal stuff, how legislation affects us, and we don’t think about the everyday stuff, like going to the post office or dating somebody.” What other everyday tasks are difficult for people without documented legal status?

For more prompts for discussion, take a look at the Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas A Nadie) Discussion Guide.
