Lines Between Us
Race and immigration status are lines that divide or connect us. With greater understanding and information, those lines blur. LMC Media’s web series “Lines Between Us” uses animation to educate, inspire, and create awareness about issues concerning racism and immigration. LMC Media worked with nonprofits that specialize in these issues to help identify voices that can speak out and tell individual stories. The videos are short stories told by an individual willing to speak on topics that have affected their lives.
Episodes will be released three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) beginning January 10, 2022. Stay tuned for more info!

CRC, The Community Resource Center
Through CRC we will identify the hard-working community members who have been victimized or treated unfairly because of their immigration status. Through their voices, we will hear about their fears, and what it means to be an immigrant in the day and age of ICE.
