This exhibition showcases the collaborative work of our “Building a Race and Immigration Dialog on Global Exclusions" (BRIDGE) project where artists and academics engaged immigrants at our university YMCA–based New American Welcome Center (NAWC) in open dialogs on possible pathways to resist the racist assumptions underpinning US immigration policies, imagine and create antiracist futures.
