“Fairness & Belonging: Discussing the State of the American Immigration System.”
Join us for the world premiere of the documentary “Alien,” featuring our very own Sunayana Dumala, Executive Director of Forever Welcome Foundation, followed by a panel discussion and community Q&A session. The evening’s purpose is to reflect upon the current state of the U.S. immigration system and, as a community, to engage in necessary healthy dialogue around one of the most critical and challenging issues facing us. The Immigration and Nationality Act enacted in 1965 was the last time the U.S. passed significant immigration reform. The landmark change paved the way for today’s immigration system, providing an opportunity for every immigrant to fulfill their American Dream. Though this act and its subsequent derivatives opened the doors to people of all countries, did this decades-old immigration reform truly succeed in creating America a safe, equitable, and welcoming haven for all immigrants?
It is no secret that America needs comprehensive immigration reform. Missing from many public debates is how highly skilled workers who are often exploited and demeaned fit into comprehensive immigration reform. Through the national release of ALIEN, we will change that.
