Among the pressing issues addressed in Toward Common Cause are immigration, migration, and human rights. At Weinberg/Newton, Wendy Ewald and Amalia Mesa-Bains contribute complementary projects that focus on Latinx migration in Chicago. Ewald presents series of photographs and a film made in Chiapas, Mexico in 1991 alongside a newly commissioned project that explores the personal challenges facing refugees and immigrants from Mexico, created in collaboration with youth at Centro Romero. Mesa-Bains presents Dos Mundos, a personal and historical meditation on migration to Chicago through the lens of her own family that makes visible the countless vital contributions the Mexican community has made to the building of Chicago
