Concert pianist Tereza Lee’s powerful story as an undocumented student inspired Sen. Dick Durbin to author the immigration legislation known as the DREAM Act.

Lee is coming Tuesday, March 3, to the Capitol Room of the Holmes Student Center as part of a series of events to support undocumented students.

Through music, spoken word, art and self-expression, Lee and NIU students will share challenges and barriers faced – and successes earned and celebrated – by undocumented students.

The event, coordinated by the Asian American Center, DREAM Action NIU and the Latino Resource Center, takes place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. A reception will follow.

Student talent includes Gladys Sanchez (spoken word), Adam Lopez (spoken word) and artists José J. Valencia, Luis Sahagun and Julio Ruiz-Santana.

For more information, call (815) 752-1177 or (815) 753-1986 or email mbringas@niu.edu.
