WE ARE DREAMers Documentary film and performance piece tells the stories of local DACA recipients and advocates for a clean “Dream” Act.
The Rose Theater and Immigrant Legal Center (formerly Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska) teamed up to create a documentary film and performance piece to tell the stories of local DACA recipients and advocate for a clean “Dream” Act.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program provides nearly 800,000 undocumented young immigrants with protection from deportation for a period of two years, subject to renewal. The documentary and performance piece were created from stories gathered through a series of workshops with DACA recipients, advocates, and immigrant service providers.
The workshops, conducted in December 2017, were facilitated by nationally renowned writer, performer and activist Daniel Beaty, with participation from local organizations including Heartland Workers Center, University of Nebraska Omaha, and College of Saint Mary.
Thanks to the generosity of the Sherwood Foundation for supporting the making of this film and the performances.
