Schuler Alumnus creates documentary to not use the subject "Illegal Alien" in libraries

By Schuler Staff

Oscar Cornejo Casares, WTHS '13, Dartmouth '17, and colleagues from Dartmouth believe that words matter when it comes to acceptance and inclusion. They formed a student-led group at Dartmouth to change the "illegal alien" subject in their school library. Their work received national attention and was debated at Congress in 2016. Their year-long effort was captured in a documentary, "Change the Subject" and recently premiered at the Highland Park Library. 

A story in the Lake County Sun News featuring the premiere can be found here
