Meet Author & Immigrant Rights Advocate Julissa Arce
For an undocumented immigrant, what is the true cost of the American dream?

Julissa Arce’s memoir tells the story of how she learned she was an undocumented immigrant on the day of her quinceañera, before conquering the corporate ladder at Goldman Sachs.

Join Julissa at Jackson Heights Community Library on Saturday, September 17 for a discussion of her memoir, as well as her experience of being a woman on male-dominated Wall Street, the stigma of being undocumented, and navigating a multicultural identity in America.

Our special event with Julissa will be held in English (at 2:00 p.m.) and Spanish (at 3:15 p.m.), andboth sessions will be moderated by New York State Assembly Member Francisco P. Moya. Free tickets are available now!
