FYSH CIR Spoken Word Campaign

FYSH CIR Spoken Word Campaign

The Youth Leadership Council of the KRCC (Korean American Resource & Cultural Center)-FYSH (Fighting Youth Shouting Out for Humanity) recently released the FYSH Spoken Word Campaign video to elevate Asian American youth voices in the immigration reform debate. Featuring stirring and thought provoking spoken word performances for local youth, the comprehensive immigration reform-focused video will be shared with Congressional leaders in the coming weeks. Leading up to the video’s release, FYSH met and talked to young people and gathered over 1,000 signatures in support of policy changes.

Today more than 11 million undocumented immigrants work hard and long hours, pay taxes, and contribute to the economy but the path to citizenship is closed. Millions of families are also separated because of the family immigration backlogs and in the future there may be new restrictions on who can be sponsored into the U.S. as a family visa category. FYSH demands a fair and inclusive pathway to citizenship and believes that family unity is a core value that we must fight to protect.

This video shares the stories of young Asian Americans. Watch it! Share it! Take Action!
