Director of National Policy, SEARAC
As a 1.5 generation formerly undocumented Filipina immigrant, I am reminded of the struggle and sacrifice my parents went through to give me a chance at a better life in the U.S. The current state of our country both saddens and angers me for the blatant lies told by our political leaders to demonize immigrant and refugee families who are some of the most honest and hardworking people in America. I want to fight for a better country, and I want to continue believe in a better future for the next generation so that my three-year old daughter can live in a world that is more equitable and more just.
