With the imminent expiration of DACA in March 2018, the ACLU of Northern California, the ACLU of Southern California and the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties have initiated a campaign, “CA is my home”, to pressure key California representatives to actively support the House bipartisan Dream Act and pass the bill by December 2017. The key representative for the San Diego area is Darrell Issa. In the last election Issa lost to his opponent, Doug Applegate, by about 7 percentage points in San Diego County. It was the Orange County voters that tipped the total in his favor, allowing him to retain his seat. Issa should be feeling vulnerable.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
