How does the United States treat its migrants and immigrants? And what can we expect in the future? What has been happening on the borders and in our cities—including San Francisco, which is a sanctuary city?
Join New York Times journalists for a conversation on the Curran stage — one month before the historic theater completely transforms into a refugee camp’s Afghan cafe for the West Coast debut of the celebrated new play THE JUNGLE. New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley calls THE JUNGLE a “thrilling drama,” which chronicles the self-governing community of refugees from various countries that emerged in Calais, France.
New York Times reporters will address how the U.S. treats its migrants and immigrants and what’s happening on our borders and in our cities, including a sanctuary city like San Francisco. National immigration correspondent Miriam Jordan will moderate this conversation with Kirk Semple, a Mexico-City based correspondent who’s traveled with multiple immigrant caravans. Katharine Gin, co-founder and executive director of Immigrants Rising, a group that works with Dreamers and undocumented youth, and Holly Cooper, a UC Davis professor and immigration attorney, will also participate in the discussion. The evening will finish by addressing audience questions.
