• from The Land of Gandhi

    A humble request, a moral obligation, and a story of dreams waiting for freedom

    be-the-change

Imagine a naïve dream coming to the US. Imagine that dream not having the power to live freely for decades because of their land of origin. Today a high-skilled immigrant from India could wait more than 20 years to be a full member of the US society, often tied to an employer, unable to change careers or start businesses and living temporarily in their minds.


The Card

Conquer with Love Card is a campaign requesting urgency in fixing America’s high-skilled immigration, including country-based criterion from the workplace.

The Film

The story puts a human face to inadvertent country-based discrimination inside the workplace that defies the American spirit and holds lives of more than 700,000 skilled immigrants from India.
Duration – 50 min

The Conversation

The conversation is a community platform to help build ideas for a 21st century high-skilled immigration system that is best for the American economy, and fair for skilled immigrants as well as the natives.

Mahatma Gandhi is not directly linked to immigration. He is the universal essence of fairness for human lives.

The film is only a part. From The Land of Gandhi is a collective voice for fairness. It needs your voice to be complete.
