Change the Narrative of a World Confronting Inequality

A Family United Will Never be Defeated

As the country enters a time of rebellion, revolution and rebirth, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA,) in collaboration with production company Mixed Operations, proudly resumes production of America’s Family; the story of a multiracial, multiethnic immigrant family in the fight to stay together.

With your support, our production can draw new audiences to the Immigrant Rights Movement, have an impact on the most critical election of our time, and work in tandem with educational resources that directly support diverse, mixed status families and deportees.
