Abused tells the gripping personal stories of the individuals, the families and the town that survived the most brutal, most expensive and largest immigration raid in the history of the United States and serves as a cautionary tale of government abuses. 

The Social Awareness Documentary Film Club aims to bring documentary films to the Texas State University and San Marcos, Texas communities that raise important questions about social justice.  This registered student organization hopes that through screenings and discussions, students, faculty, staff, and members of the larger community will be inspired to work together to make the world a safer, happier, more just place.  For more information, contact Max Anderson at mma42@txstate.edu or Dr. Jon Lasser at lasser@txstate.edu.
