Leah’s Story (2017) TRT: 8 min.

Grateful to have worked on this timely piece by the Nikkei Democracy Project. Produced in partnership with the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

The Nikkei Democracy Project is a multi-media collective of Japanese Americans that promotes social justice, and creates coalitions and collaborations across diverse communities. We connect deeply to Leah’s story because of the legacy of immigration, exclusion, deportation and detention of our own families.
