Platano Restaurant – 2042 University Avenue, Berkeley
This benefit dinner will feature a presentation by Roderico Díaz, a Maya Kaqchikel photojournalist, documentary filmmaker, and co-founder of the Guatemalan Independent Media Center (CMI-Guate).

His current work focuses on documenting the lives of Central American refugees living in sanctuary in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he now resides. Come hear Rode talk about his work as a committed photographer and the connections between the struggles to defend indigenous communities in Guatemala and refugees seeking sanctuary in the U.S.
