The Power of Good Stories - Experiences of Immigrant Youth
"There's often no greater power in storytelling than letting youth speak for themselves about the challenges they face every day. This week, millions of Americans will be able to glimpse inside the struggles and victories of bright, talented young people who are homeless and living with the threat of deportation but refuse to give up their dreams.
Inocente is an award-winning film about an undocumented 15-year-old Latina girl determined to become an artist despite being homeless for the last 9 years. It airs August 17 at 10pm on MTV. "Eye of the Storm" is a cartoon that follows the true story of a bright college student detained as an "illegal alien" and facing deportation just months before she was set to graduate from college. It's a look at life in a way that no policy brief or report can offer. Let us know what you think."
