Once Upon a Time There Was a Girl Whose Mother Was About to Be Deported
This multimedia project tells the story of sanctuary through the voice and original writing of a 10-year-old girl named Dulce Carvajal, who lived as a refugee in a Manhattan church with her family as they fight together the threat of being separated from her mother by immigration police.
