I had the honor of being the mentor for Puente Visón, a youth media collective, in their first year. Alejandra was is this video that I shot and edited to fight her father’s deportation, and to celebrate their victory. Alejandra teamed up with Jennifer, Carlos, Rosalyn, Leslie, Joey and Rocio to start Puente Visión, a youth media collective. The youth have been making videos and taking photographs to support other families in their community. Puente Visión is youth led and they create their own programming and projects. The group is developing media and leadership skills while they express the trauma of family separation though creativity and art.
