National Exhibit Puts Faces First to Highlight Importance of Supreme Court Ruling on Administrative Immigration Relief Programs
Photo exhibit and stories runs in various US cities to highlight human impact of not having immigration reform or administrative relief
Los Angeles, CA – Today at the Los Angeles City Hall Rotunda, the Korean Resource Center, part of the California Table for Immigration Reform, one of the largest and oldest coalitions in California in support of policy reforms on immigration law, and a project of CHIRLA, along with immigrant families launched a national education effort called “The Faces of DAPA and DACA+”.
The art, picture and story exhibit, coordinated with the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), runs from April 12 through June 15, 2016 in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New York, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C. In California, the exhibit is scheduled to make stops in Los Angeles, Riverside, Bakersfield, and San Jose.
The “Faces of DAPA/DACA+” Exhibit begins just as the Supreme Court is preparing to hear oral arguments in the U.S. v. Texas case that concerns President Obama’s administrative relief programs known as DAPA and DACA Expansion. The exhibit initiates its travel throughout the country in Los Angeles and is scheduled to end with a large, collective exhibit in Washington, DC, in June before the High Court’s decision announcement.
