Interactive Documentary on Immigration Issue

» View News & Updates List  

Dear Friends,

Eric Byler and I are working on an Interactive Documentary on YouTube about the politicization of the immigration issue in Northern Virginia. Our hope is not only about disseminating news and information.
We hope that our YouTube videos can help promote greater understanding and alleviate the hostility in Northern Virginia.

We invite you to join the conversation on our YouTube channel and/or on one of the blogs.

In July, Prince William Co. Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the harshest local legislation in the nation aiming to remove "illegal immigrants" from their county. Supporters say that the Board is brave and it is necessary in order to preserve the law and quality of life.
Critics say that it´s racist and a cynical case of self-serving
political grandstanding in an election year.

On November 6th, all local and state-level seats are up for election in Virginia including PW Co. Board Chairman Corey Stewart and Supervisor John Stirrup who introduced the controversial resolution.

Because of the timeliness of the subject, we felt compelled to create a real-time, interactive documentary Youtube channel -- breaking with the usual documentary post-production method that delays public feedback for months and months.

Thank you for your support! And feel free to contact me about this project.

All the best,
Annabel Park
