This weekend’s theme is Immigration and Refugee Policy: Experience the impact of immigration policy on DACA recipients and refugees. Watch a mother and daughter grapple with uncertainty as they wait for their future to be determined by the Supreme Court. See how the Trump administration’s restrictions on family-based immigration impact the hopes and stability of a new Rohingya refugee whose family remains in a refugee camp.
Our weekly online New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) themed screenings allow you to watch a selection of the NIRV films with your home-bound and online family and friends.
Included are discussion questions and additional resources to deepen your understanding of this week’s theme and immigration issues.
