About RAISE: Because every one of us has a story to tell...
"I can't get a job. I can't start a career."
"I can't totally relax. I have to be careful of what to say, and what not to say."
"I can't have my parents by my side."
"I can't sleep at night, because I'm worried about immigration agents breaking down my door."
Why We Rise is a compelling new documentary short featuring three brave young Asian New Yorkers who reveal what it's like to grow up without having legal immigration status. Their struggles and their strength are on full display as they come out of the shadows and into the light.
Why We Rise premiered May 20th in front of a packed audience at #UndocuAsians, a theater performance by RAISE.
