Do you know who I am? is a critically acclaimed production by MOTUS theater. It’s a series of monologues written and performed by immigrants, very personal stories. Recently they got local enforcement involved in a special performance of the monologues, but instead of the immigrants reading the stories, they read the stories. A film screening of the law enforcement reading the monologues happens in Lafayette on Thursday April 26th. It will be followed by a Q and A with two of the participants – immigrant rights advocate Victor Galvan who was brought to the US as a baby, and Rick Bashor, the Lafayette Chief of Police. In this performance, Bashor reads Galvan’s monologue.
Listen to Victor Galvan speak about having a law enforcement officer read his monologue and the challenges facing immigrants right now.
Listen to Lafayette Police Chief Rick Bashor speak about the impact on the local community of federal immigration policies.
