This blueprint seeks to create video media on immigration issues faced by the Dallas immigrant and nonimmigrant community to be displayed via online channels. One in four residents of Dallas is an immigrant (Dallas Office of Welcoming Communities and Immigrant Affairs), and many members of the Dallas community work to create a symbiotic and integrated city that elevates the rights of immigrants. Documenting these efforts can help elevate the work of both immigrants and nonimmigrants to create welcoming communities and serve as a model for activists and neighbors on methods toward improving immigrant experiences in a community. This project will utilize video creation and online channels to document the community-building efforts undertaken by the immigrant and nonimmigrant communities of Dallas.
