My American Dreams makes short films to educate and reach the hearts and minds of Americans about the undocumented members of our society. President Obama's "Dreamers Act" significantly impacts the lives of young immigrants who arrived here by their 16th birthday before 2007. We have created six films about young Dreamers whose lives illustrate how the DACA law has allowed them to come out of the economic, educational, and social shadows.

You can watch our newly released 30-minute documentary, "The Only Home I know" here.
