Director: Zijun Cathy You (SocDoc Thesis Production Grant, SVA Alumni Award)
A group of Chinese immigrants has volunteered for more than forty years as NYPD auxiliary officers, to protect their isolated community from crime, as well as an effort to join mainstream society decades ago. However, as anti-Asian discrimination increases during the pandemic, they feel powerless to help their community, as their health is at risk patrolling the streets. Now about to retire, they find hope in the younger generation to make a better future.
