Working Films presents America Ferrera's Out of Reach
Out of Reach follows actress America Ferrera as she travels to Texas in the final months of the Obama Administration to find out how immigration policies are affecting the 1.65 million undocumented people currently living in the state.
A drastic shift in rhetoric nationally around immigrants and the rescinding of DACA are indicative of a hardened stance that pushes some of the country’s most vulnerable into the shadows. Nowhere is this more so than in Texas, a state that remains the epicenter of immigration activism.
The screening will be followed by a panel featuring Andrea Guttin with Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative, Oscar Hernandez with United We Dream, Miriam Camero with RAICES, and Marianela Arraeza with Fe y Justicia Workers Center.
