A screening of "The Garden," which follows the plight of the farmers in South Central Los Angeles, from the tilled soil of this urban farm to the polished marble of City Hall. Most are immigrants from Latin America, from countries where they feared for their lives if they were to speak out. We watch them organize, fight back, and demand answers.

The film will fill the first hour of the session and will be followed by a discussion of themes and topics presented in the film.
