Join us for a post-film discussion with Activist and Producer Moises Serrano.
Moises Serrano has lived most of his life in Yadkin County, NC. His journey as an organizer began when he publicly revealed his undocumented status to highlight the importance of passing the DREAM Act. After the failure of the DREAM Act he became a part of the National Coordinating Committee for United We Dream and the campaign for Deferred Action. As a publicly gay man, Moises’ mission is to unite the immigration and LGBTQ movements, seeing them both as a struggle for human rights.
"Moises embodies the lived experience of the “Dreamers.” But what distinguishes the film is the detail with which it reveals how our country depends on the labor of immigrants like Moises’ parents, who worked in chicken- processing plants but were systematically marginalized and denied vital services ranging from driver’s licenses to a college education." -Lecia Brooks, Southern Poverty Law Center Director of Outreach
