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 8th, these two documentaries will be screened at George Mason University followed by a panel discussion featuring two of the Dream Riders.
This event is co-hosted by George Mason University's Women and Gender Studies Center, the George Mason University AAPI Studies Working Group, Mason DREAMers, and NAKASEC. This tour is initiated by NAKASEC, the Korean Resource Center (KRC) of Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and the Korean American Resource & Cultural Center (KRCC) in Chicago.
