In January 2017, the Dream Resource Center (DRC) at UCLA launched the multi-media exhibit, Undocumented Stories. Undocumented Stories utilizes storytelling to uplift the lived experiences of the unaccompanied minors and undocumented youth who built a movement to change policies impacting higher education, immigration reform, accesses to health care, and deportation proceedings. This exhibit intends to empower immigrant communities, reconstruct narratives, shape public opinion, and influence policy.
