Immigration Blogging Archive (or, what I did Fall 2010)

April 1, 2011

Obligatory, looong-overdue “it’s been a while since I’ve blogged…” post chock full of content. From late September 2010 through mid-December 2010, I had the honor and privilege to work with America’s Voice as their New Media Intern. My first true foray into activist blogging, it was a humbling, educational, and inspiring experience. The amazing people I worked with and the awesome young Dreamers – immigrants and activists fighting for the right to go to school, work, serve in the military, and give back to the country they love and call home – touched me deeply and taught me a lot about passion and perseverance.

The only way to sum up the experience is through some of the words, images, and video I posted during that time, featuring actions and people that left a big impression. Even if you are not interested in immigration as a political issue, even if you’re pretty sure you know where you stand, please, take a look at the articles, stories and images below. These young people are amazing, and continue to push for their dreams.

Most of these posts were edited by the talented Jackie Mahendra, now with Change.org. Huge shout-outs also to Mahwish, Matt, and the rest of the AV staff for their inspiration and support.
