Education Town Hall

I participated in an education townhall at the National Opportunity to Learn Summit. I was slotted because Dr. Isabel Castillo was unavailable and the event took place right after my Federal Income Tax final! Needless to say, I was brain-fried but did manage to tell the story of Joaquin Luna, an undocumented youth who killed himself due to his lack of legal status, and how making sure that this doesn’t happen to every undocumented youth was a moral imperative.

This just about sums it up.

As a response to Luna’s untimely death and the deportation of another undocumented immigrant, Yanelli, the National Immigrant Youth Alliance unveiled “Undocuhealth.”
