Get an opportunity to see a new art exhibit from the Dream Resource Center entitled "Undocumented Stories."
The Dream Resource Center (DRC) launched Undocumented Stories, an exhibit curated by UCLA students, DRC staff, and SolArt on January 24, 2017. Undocumented Stories utilizes storytelling to uplift the lived experiences of the undocumented immigrant community and highlight how they have built a movement to change policies impacting higher education, access to healthcare, and deportation proceedings. Undocumented Stories also include stories of unaccompanied minors to help contextualize this humanitarian crisis. Undocumented Stories is a multimedia exhibit that seeks to empower immigrant communities to reconstruct narratives, shape public opinion, and influence policy affecting undocumented immigrant community. The exhibit uses photographs, oral histories, posters, art, videos, and artifacts to showcase these powerful stories. Find out more about the exhibit here!
