Radio Campesina Joins Inside Out Project to Support Dreamers

LPRC member station Radio Campesina and the César Chávez Foundation joined the national participatory art project Inside Out, dedicated to Dreamers, as part of their commitment to Latino advocacy, equality, social justice, diversity and immigrant rights.

The Inside Out Project is a global participatory art project where people stand up for what they care about through the power of their own images. Inside Out created a special edition dedicated to immigration, DACA and Dreamers who are providing their portraits and a stand up statement.  The project has been traveling across the U.S to give communities and local leaders a platform to amplify their voices.

“What this project did was to put a face to the DREAM Act movement. It showed that we all Dreamers, we all have wants and needs and the only things that separate us are the color of our skin, language and a border,” said Radio Campesina VP, Michael Nowakowski.

Last month, the Inside Out Dreamers project stopped by the Chavez Foundation in Phoenix and Radio Campesina was there to share this moment with its listeners. People had their picture taken in a photo-booth with props and art to stand in solidarity with Dreamers. These portraits are meant to remind the community of the human stories and faces behind the national debate surrounding Dreamers.

In the face of the U.S. Administration’s decision to rescind DACA, the Inside Out/Dreamers project provides communities and local leaders with a platform to amplify their voices, creating a diverse portrait of America with immigrants and their descendants. Other local organizations were also part of the event: Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), UFW Foundation, and Mi Familia Vota.
