PAWTalks: Judge Torres
Based on the true story of a Multnomah County Circuit Judge
Thursday, September 26, 2019 · 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Our Inspirational Talks series that invites speakers each semester from all over the country to discuss personal experiences relating to their identity, research and/or global issues that impact diversity and inclusion. PAWTalks is an interactive, cultural sharing experience by highlighting the richness of the various cultures through speakers from around the country representing diverse backgrounds.
This special PAWTalk will showcase the life of Multnomah County Circuit Judge Xiomara Torres. Judge Torres is a modern day fairytale rooted in Salvadoran folklore. It is a story of triumph against the odds; Xiomara Torres made her rise from undocumented immigrant to one of only a few Latina judges in Oregon. After the play, attendees will be able to engage in a facilitated dialogue with the performers. All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend!
