On February 27, a group called Breakthrough came to visit with the Activism Committee. Their organization specializes in creating video games and short films about immigrant’s experiences with anti-immigrant prejudice. The organization started in India and focuses in India on Women’s Rights. In the US, Breakthrough focus on drawing attention to human rights issues. Their video games include I.C.E.D. (I Can End Deportation), America 2049, I Am This Land, and more. They publicize their games and videos through Facebook and other social media like Twitter. We hope to play some Breakthrough games in Computer/History Seminar and to work with Breakthrough on a project after our trip to Washington DC.
