THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED.

“Stories Beyond Borders” is an organizing initiative that uses documentary films to show a more complete picture of the attacks on immigrant families and communities. Beyond building empathy, these five short films lift up real stories of resilience and strength, while illustrating some of the ways people can give their time, energy, and resources to support organizing led by immigrant communities.

At a moment when the rights of immigrants are being attacked, a fuller story of immigration needs to be told to address the harms perpetuated by immigration enforcement practices and policies that extend beyond the crisis at the border. Whether it’s through raids, people being picked up at courthouses, or being forced to live in churches – families are being separated and attacked across America. People are standing up against these attacks and “Stories Beyond Borders” is a resource in these efforts, sharing powerful media and connecting audiences to the timeliest actions.
