Workers Defense Project Border Narrative Change Grant

Workers Defense Project (WDP) will connect their members to experienced artists in the creation of a statewide, multimedia art project that forms a powerful collective narrative highlighting the unique challenges and inspirational resilience of Texas’ essential, immigrant and undocumented worker community. Building off the creative passion that has sustained their movement for the past 15 years, WDP hopes to utilize their members’ artistic expression to share their individual lived experiences while grabbing the attention of local, state and federal policymakers, the media, and general public as a way to push for systemic change throughout 2021, including the Texas Legislative session.
