On Tuesday, 3/28, Rocio Vasquez from the Mexican Consulate of Philadelphia came to Bryn Mawr College to talk about her work at the consulate, what she does during the day, and how they are working to protect immigrants in the area. The consulate does amazing work with labor rights, family law, criminal law, and health services.
The event was a casual, conversational environment with a q/a session, and there was a large turnout including faculty and staff. The event will also be covered by the Bryn Mawr website.
We thank Rocio for coming and sharing her perspectives, and we look forward to getting involved with the Mexican consulate in the future to help promote human rights here and abroad.
