“Las Madres de Berks” documentary shares the testimonials of four mothers that were detained for 2 years with their children at The Berks County Residential Center, a family prison in Pennsylvania. The documentary also features the artworks that Ortiz created based on the Berks mother’s stories that were unveiled in Harrisburg during a statewide action against family detention led by her community partner, the Shut Down Berks Coalition. The screening will be followed by a talkback to learn ways to take action to end family detention.
