From our Roots/Desde Nuestras Raices, is a digital story that brings viewers inside the process of immigrants’ integration and the cultural conflicts they encounter in such processes. The story is told from the perspective of first and second generation immigrants in the Central Valley who share their journey, leaving behind their roots and struggling to find a place of dignity and respect in the United States.
The stories were produced by the Pan Valley Institute of the American Friends Service Committee and the Participatory Action Research (PAR) Team.
