Community Book Conversations by Julissa Arce - My (Underground) American Dream: My True Story as an Undocumented Immigrant Who Became a Wall Street Executive
Along with other community organizations, COCC and Building Common Ground will again organize several community book conversations on My (Underground) American Dream by Julissa Arce. The book explores the polarizing question: for an undocumented immigrant, what is the true cost of the American dream? The conversations will span a period of 4 weeks at a variety of meeting places. These book studies will be powerful explorations on the topic of immigration.
Collaborators with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion include Building Common Ground and Deschutes Cultural Coalition.
