"From the Land of Gandhi" Film Screening

Although highly-skilled immigrants have continued to live in America for decades and contribute to American economy in several ways, they are forced to wait for decades to get employment-based green cards.  "From the Land of Gandhi" film portrays this much ignored aspect of the immigration system through the lens of four immigrant couples from India, who originally came to the United States to pursue their Master's degrees.

#WeAreDreamersToo is a community-led campaign to raise awareness and engagement on high-skilled immigration, an aspect of immigration that needs immediate attention to boost America's global competitiveness and to keep families together. It brings together immigrants, residents from the broader American community, and local congressional staffers and advocacy organizations towards raising a nation-wide conversation.
