May marks Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in the United States. Yet, as the fastest growing population in the country, undocumented stories are often overlooked. FWD.us and MinKwon Center for Community Action are proud to present two short documentaries Halmoni and Dream Riders Across America to educate AAPI communities on pains of family separation as well as dreams and hopes of undocumented immigrant youth. 

The documentary screening will be followed by a short community discussion; a special Open Mic Night will close the event.

Light fare and refreshments will be available. Event will start promptly at 7:00pm, screening will start at 7:10pm. WeWork Studio Square is kindly providing their Terrace space for this event.

The MinKwon Center is a non-for-profit organization based in New York. It places a special emphasis on meeting the needs of our marginalized community members who have less access to resources, including the youth, the elderly, recent immigrants, low-income residents, and limited English proficient residents.

Building Bridges-National AAPI DACA Video Tour is initiated by the National Korean American Service and Education Consortium (NAKASEC), Korean Resource Center (KRC) of Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and the Korean American Resource and Cultural Center (KRCC) of Chicago.
