Immigration Allies to Change Agents
How can we make America a more inclusive space?
It’s going to take individual and collective action to reshape the immigrant experience in our country. In these three short videos you’ll be introduced to people and organizations whose actions ranged from small personal choices to large-scale solutions. We hope you’re inspired to shift from an ally to a change agent.
Begin with a timeline of immigration, followed by Bob Fletcher’s heroic act and lastly, Alyssa Rubin’s narrative behind standing up to ICE. Then create a profile to share your own own story, reflections, commitments, or questions.
In partnership with Driving Force Institute, we at XQ invite you to dive into the videos below.
