The NY Daily News reports a group known as RAISE–Revolutionizing Asian American Immigrant Stories on the East Coast- is kicking off the new theater group, UndocuAsians.

1.3 million of the nation’s 11.5 million undocumented immigrants come from Asian countries.

“We’re out here and we want people to understand our unique struggles,” she said.
