Diane Guerrero

“Orange is the New Black” star and immigration reform activist Diane Guerrero will visit Penn State Harrisburg on Tuesday, April 11 at 5 p.m. in the Capital Union Building gymnasium on campus. Guerrero will discuss immigration and her book titled “In the Country We Love: My Family Divided.”

As a teenager, Guerrero suffered through a forced separation from her family when her loved ones were deported. She will share the story of how she was able to remain in the U.S., continue her education, and build a successful career. After the departure of her family, Guerrero never lost focus and continued to work hard to build a better life for herself.

Guerrero has subsequently appeared on numerous television series and is best known for her roles as Maritza Ramos on the award-winning, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” for which she received two Screen Actors Guild awards, and as Lina in CW's “Jane the Virgin.”

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend the event. To register, please visit dianeguerrero.eventbrite.com.
