UndocuNation: An Evening with Artists for Immigrant Justice

CultureStrike coordinator Favianna Rodriguez teams up with other creative minds for UndocuNation: An Artistic Response to the Immigration Crisis. With talks, food, revelry and rabble-rousing, the event offers “an evening of culture jamming, visual art, and performances addressing the devastating consequences of our country’s broken immigration system.” Sponsored by CultureStrike, Center for New Community, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), UndocuNation will use various media platforms to raise consciousness about the struggle for immigrant rights: music, installation art, readings and personal testimony–all “working to shift the national imagination on race, migration, and what ‘America’ should look like.” The program will feature innovators and change makers like hip hop historian Jeff Chang, author Daniel Alarcón, and the conscious comedians of Laughter Against the Machine. For a full list of artists and performers, check out CultureStrike.
