Split at the Root Screening with the CBE Refugee Task Force
Monday, March 27 at 6:30 PM
CBE Chapel

In July of 2018, as asylum-seeking families were being cruelly separated and placed into detention camps on our southern border, CBE joined forces with Immigrant Families Together (IFT) to help reunite Rosy Pablo Cruz with her children and to support them as they healed from the trauma of separation. Today, the full IFT story, including Rosy's story, is told through the moving new documentary, Split at the Root. 

Join us on Monday, March 27 at 6:30pm in the CBE Chapel, for a screening and talk-back with Julie Schwietert Collazo, the founder of IFT, and Rosy Pablo Cruz. Split at the Root follows the emotional journey of mothers separated from their children at the U.S. border and the grassroots initiative that, against all odds, reunites those families. When a Guatemalan mother seeking asylum was separated from her kids under the Zero Tolerance Policy, a Facebook post by a mom in Queens coalesced into a movement as thousands of like-minded women across the US refused to stand by silently. Immigrant Families Together was born - a rapid response group committed to doing what the government couldn't - or wouldn't - do: reunite parents with their children. This film is especially relevant today as the Biden Administration considers new policies for asylum-seekers at the U.S./Mexico border.
