187: The Rise of the Latino Vote

A 1994 California ballot measure sought to deny public services to undocumented immigrants

The 90-min. film, directed by Dignicraft film and art collective, chronicles Proposition 187, a California ballot measure passed in 1994 that sought to deny public services to undocumented immigrants. While the initiative was meant to keep the “immigrant threat” at bay, it mobilized non-immigrants and immigrants in Latino communities as well as their allies across the state.

    187: The Rise of the Latino Vote is a local public television program presented by PBS SoCal | KCET.
