New laws in Arizona require immigrants to carry immigration documents with them at all times and give police broad powers to stop and detain those suspected of being in the country illegally. Advocates from around the country are challenging the laws in court and organizing marches, rallies, and boycotts.

Nuclear Crisis on the Korean Peninsula

This month, peace activists and world leaders gather in New York City to review the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, now in its 40th year. Aimed at protecting countries without nuclear weapons from those which have them, the US has specifically exempted North Korea and Iran from its terms. We speak with Hye-ran Oh from Solidarity for Peace and Reunification in Korea and JT Takagi from Nodutdol for Korean Community Development about how this stance is exacerbating regional tensions in Asia.

“Wo Ai Ni Mommy”

Since China opened its doors in 1992 to international adoption, 70,000 children have left the country to join families in the US. A new documentary looks at the process of displacement and acculturation through the story of one family, including the wrenching experience of the adoptive girl, who was eight years old at the time. The film will screen at the Asia Society in NYC on May 14.
