Becoming Ourselves: How Immigrant Women Transformed Their World is a new documentary film about how a social justice organization based in Oakland California—Asian Immigrant Women Advocates (AIWA)—focused on building long-term collective leadership of limited-English speaking immigrants, and empowered women and youth to become powerful agents of social change.
AIWA has inspired hundreds of low-wage immigrant garment, electronic and healthcare workers in the San Francisco Bay Area. AIWA’s Community Transformational Organizing Strategy (CTOS) has been a model for many immigrant organizations. After 15 years, Young Shin is taking CTOS on the road to foster a broader dialogue with local communities in Canada and the U.S. about the importance of grassroots leadership development in community organizing.
There will be a post-film discussion with Young Shin, Excutive Director of Asian Immigrant Women Advocates.
