2017 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Melissa Skolnick-Noguera (ACG ’12) has been invited by LEA (Latinos and Education in America) to travel to Austin, Texas to share her multimedia work and conduct a training with local Latinx immigrant youth in the Austin Public Schools in May. Melissa will participate in a panel and screen her film The Engine of My Life, the story of how two immigrant sisters in Philadelphia fight for their rights (co-directed by Milena Velis/Media Mobilizing Project). Melissa will also conduct a training with Austin youth on how to document their stories through photography. These stories will be shared with Latinx immigrant youth in South Philly, as Melissa develops a tool and collaborative process for sharing these stories across cities.
