Immigration and the Arts
Law is Downstream from Culture.
Raices lookS to the arts to SPARK Conversations around immigration, justice, and humanity in order to TOUCH hearts and minds, and ultimately IMPACT immigration policies and practices.
“Singer, songwriter, and self-proclaimed ‘artivist’ Aloe Blacc, the son of Black Panamanian immigrants, agreed to work with NDLON to produce a music video about the journey migrants face to come to the U.S. in search for a better life. The music video features real-life day laborers and undocumented youth organizers, most of whom had ongoing cases about their status or family members who faced imminent deportation.”
– Marco Loera, Director of Art and Technology
Every month we highlight a guest curator. This month’s curatorial partner, NDLON (National Day Laborer Organizing Network) improves the lives of day laborers, migrants and low-wage workers. We build leadership and power among those facing injustice so they can challenge inequality and expand labor, civil and political rights for all. Learn more at ndlon.org.
