Human Rights Watch Film Festival: The Unafraid

Hosted by Museum of Photographic Arts

Confirmed Speakers:
Discussion to follow with filmmakers Anayansi Prado, Heather Courtney

The Unafraid
Directors: Anayansi Prado, Heather Courtney
2018, 85 min

“We have years of activism under our belts. Now we just fight harder, we fight smarter, and we fight as one.”
– Alejandro, film subject, The Unafraid

High School seniors Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo, like most of their friends, are eager to go to college and pursue their education. However, their home state of Georgia not only bans them from attending the top five public universities, but also deems them ineligible for in-state tuition at public colleges due to their immigration status as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. In response, these three ambitious and dream-filled students divert their passions towards the fight for education in the undocumented community. As President Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric against immigrants gains momentum, and amid constant threat of losing their DACA status and being deported, The Unafraid follows these inspirational members of the generation of “undocumented, unapologetic and unafraid” young people who are determined to overcome and dismantle oppressive policies and mindsets.

About HRWFF:
Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. We work tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep rooted change and fight to bring greater justice and security to people around the world. Through our Human Rights Watch Film Festival we bear witness to human rights violations and create a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference. The film festival brings to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people.

Families Belong Together March - San Diego

Join us on June 30, as we join forces with the ACLU, MoveOn, The Leadership Conference, and National Domestic Workers Alliance to send a clear message: Families Belong Together!

"What’s happening to families at the border right now is horrific: Nursing infants ripped away from their mothers. Parents told their toddlers are being taken to bathe or play, only to realize hours later that they aren’t coming back. Children incarcerated in warehouses and, according to more than one account, kept in cages. This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged."  - Hillary Clinton

Families Belong Together March - San Diego

Please join WMSD in solidarity with San Diego Indivisible.

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.


💛


Familias Unidas, No Divididas echaza la separación cruel, inhumana e injustificada de niños de sus padres a lo largo de la frontera de los Estados Unidos con México y en otros puertos de entrada a los EE. UU. Protestamos por las condiciones en las que se mantienen a estos niños. Protestamos contra el trauma irreversible que ya se ha perpetrado contra estos niños y sus padres por el delito de buscar una vida mejor.

Separar a las familias inmigrantes, familias víctima de la violencia, el hambre y la pobreza es volver a violentarlas. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos separa a niños de tan solo 18 meses de los brazos de sus madres. Esto es abuso. Estas familias son nuevamente victimizadas por el gobierno al que acuden en busca de ayuda. Familias Unidas, No Divididas se opone a las políticas inhumanas de la administración de Donald Trump, Protección Fronteriza y I.C.E. y pide una reforma inmediata.

March for Our Lives San Diego

Women's March San Diego has heard the call from our kids, the survivors of the school shooting in Florida who are calling for a march on Washington, and across the country to demand action on gun control.

Thoughts and prayers are not enough to honor the victims of gun violence. What we need now is action.

On March 24, 2018, students will rally in Washington D.C and in local communities across the country to demand action from our leaders. Join WMSD as we support our students in the March For Our Lives, as we fight for an America that is free from gun violence.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar.

The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us in solidarity as we support the students on this effort. Details to include location and time are TBD.

United Intersections of Justice RALLY

We will gather our community in response to the wave of white supremacist, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT statements occurring nationally, post Charlottesville.

This non-violent Rally Against Hate is equal parts solidarity and action, offering a visible demonstration of intersectional movements and leaders standing against violence and hate and the rhetoric that fuels both.

After a brief program, community members are invited to take action and visit tables of local community organizations to learn about their work, to get involved, to register to vote, to learn how to host "Stay woke" house parties, to call on and communicate with elected officials locally and nationally, and more...

San Diego Candlelight Vigil for Charlottesville

  • San Diego County Administration Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

There has never been a clearer sign that we must continue what we started with the Women's March than what happened in Charlottesville. The line has been jackhammered into the concrete. Women's March San Diego is standing in solidarity with Together We Will: Indivisible San Diego for Charlottesville. Join us. Condemn disgusting white supremacy and neo-Nazism. Honor those who fight against. BRING SIGNS AND CANDLES. We are asking people to promote good relations between all peoples. Our strategy is to use non-violence to counter the message of hate groups and to publicly express our support for the victims of crime in Charlottesville. Please be part of our strength! We call for a strong and decisive stand against racism, oppression, and white supremacy in all its forms. The violence we have witnessed in the past 48 hours in the small college town of Charlottesville, VA is simply another chapter in a long legacy of hate in America. With one voice, we demand it to stop! 

PLEASE WEAR YOUR WOMEN'S MARCH TSHIRTS IF YOU HAVE ONE!

SDPD will be there to support our vigil!

Impeachment March - San Diego

  • San Diego County Administration Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

On Sunday, July 2nd, we march to demand Congress DO THEIR JOB and remove Trump from The White House.

Donald Trump’s extreme disregard for the Constitution is a profound subversion of the Office of the President. We demand that Congress does its job and commences with impeachment proceedings immediately.  We demand that Congress stop enabling President Trump through an embarrassing and potentially catastrophic charade of normalcy.

TAKE ACTION: Save the ACA

Republican senators say their phones aren’t ringing to save the ACA, so here’s the contact list:

As Republicans plan to vote on a health care bill that they won’t even allow the public to see, one that reportedly will take away pre-existing condition protections for tens of millions of Americans, there are reports they feel emboldened to do so now because calls to the Senate regarding the ACA and the AHCA have dwindled to normal call levels, after the unprecedented deluge of calls around Trump’s inauguration. 

Every single senator has a legislative assistant dedicated to health care. It is time for all hands on deck. These legislative assistants need to hear directly from you. Be precise, be polite, make your voice heard.
