The National AAPI/DACA Video Tour is a national communication campaign to educate AAPI communities on pains of family separation as well as dreams and hopes of undocumented immigrant youth through the screening of two documentaries followed by community discussions. Dream Riders Across America is documentary about 12 Asian, Latinx, and African American youth from across the country who embarked on a road trip to amplify the voices of young people of color and immigrants and build the power of youth throughout the country. Halmoni (Grandmother) traces Ju Hong's trip to South Korea on Advanced Parole through DACA to reunite with his ailing grandmother for the first time in over 13 years.
On April 18th, following the national mass mobilization in front of the Supreme Court during the oral arguments on the United States v. Texas case regarding DACA expansion and DAPA, we will launch this campaign in Washington, DC.
