Nadia was invited by the Mexican organization CAFAMI (Migrant Family Support Center) to teach a Theater of the Oppressed workshop. CAFAMI’s mission is to “bring awareness and attack the root causes of migration while reducing the negative impact of migration that separates families and threatens the local way of life.” Nadia taught the workshop to women in the rural community of San Francisco Tetlanohcan, in the state of Tlaxcala, Mexico. This community is characterized by high rates of migration. During her time in the community, Nadia was able to experience the other side of immigration and the devastating results of family separation. The week-long workshop culminated with a Forum Theater piece created by the women, which will be brought to the United States in 2015 in hopes to raise awareness about the causes and the consequences of migration and immigration.
This was a wonderful experience and Nadia is thankful for the opportunity she had to share with this amazing women!
