USAHello features NIRV films to celebrate launch of new website

April 12, 2020

USAHello, an online center for information and education for immigrants and asylum seekers, celebrates New Immigrant and Refugee Visions with the launch of their new website.

Beginning in April 2020, the organization will post to their site a different NIRV film every month to spotlight the many contributions that new Americans make to our society.

The films fit just perfectly within the context of USAHello’s Voices blog, a platform for refugees and immigrants to tell their own stories.

Rafael DeLeon, director of “She’s an American Child”

They’ve kicked things off with the ever-so-timely She’s an American Child, a story about the psychological and logistical challenges facing an undocumented Dominican mother and her DACA designated daughter.

New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) is a collection of ten documentary films by and about new immigrants and refugees. Their stories provide personal experiences of the integration challenges faced by immigrants and the contributions they make to our culture, economy and social fabric.

View excerpts from all the films.
