Day 3 Film Fest – 10 Days of New Immigrant and Refugee Films

December 24, 2018

It’s Day 3 of Community Supported Film’s 10 day New Immigrant and Refugee Visions film festival. New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (aka NIRV, hence the 10 days of NIRVmas) is a bounty of stories about the current immigrant experience in the United States.

In these divisive times these stories have proven to transform minds and motivate action.

We want these films to influence the national immigration debate –  from town halls to the Halls of Congress, in communities both welcoming and resistant to new immigrants.

Get-the-NIRV and donate to our national screen and discuss campaign, – and thanks!

 

Today’s excerpt is from Qin Li, a scholar and activist who emigrated from China in 2015. Qin shares a view of her neighbors’ efforts to create a more inclusive neighborhood in this excerpt from Campaign for a New American.
