Dotted Line: noun /ˌdädəd ˈlīn/
A man-made line that runs through what was once Mexico - separating two different political stages, economic realities, geographical areas, families, and the truth behind the “American Dream”.
¨Dotted Line: Marked by the Frontera¨ is a photo-memoir book that weaves together the diverse stories of the people whose lives are influenced by the El Paso/Juárez border on a daily basis, and the stories of two young Latina women with diverse backgrounds who explore what the border represents for them in this current political climate. Laura, a DACAmented Colombian young woman and Chantelle, a first-generation American born young woman with Bolivian roots, take off their activist hats and return to El Paso to use the power of storytelling as a vehicle to continue to amplify the voices of those of us impacted by the “dotted line”.
We hope that this project accomplishes three things:
1. A step forward in ensuring that the Latinx immigrant community be the primary storytellers of their own narratives.
2. Provide some level of exposure, awareness, and support to the many organizations, people, and issues found at the El Paso/Juarez border.
3. Continue the discussion about the diverse experiences found within the immigrant community in the United States.
