Voces is proud to host this special film screening and community dialogue surrounding issues pertaining to students, DACA, and progressive actions that Voces is taking in the state of Wisconsin. There will also be a panel of local experts to discuss the unique challenges DACAmented students face attending college.
Description of the film The Unafraid below:
“The Unafraid is a feature-length documentary that follows the personal lives of three DACAmented students in Georgia, a state that has banned undocumented and students receiving Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) from attending their top five public universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college.
Shot over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo and the obstacles they face in their home state when trying to go to college. This is also a story about family and community and the systemic challenges faced by the working poor and undocumented in the Deep South.”
