Youth Leaders Across Borders

Home / Youth Leaders Across Borders

From February 2nd to 11th, a delegation of youth from Mexico and El Salvador will visit cities in Michigan and Illinois, to raise awareness about the impacts of deportation and highlight the important role that urban art and community organizing can play in preventing violence and offering alternatives for young people. This learning tour will visit high schools, universities, youth collectives, and faith allies. The delegation is co-organized with Strangers No Longer, a network of Catholics in SE Michigan who form Circles of Support in their parishes to educate, accompany families and advocate for more humane policies and practices toward immigrants; Other Dreams in Action, a self-help, activism, and mutual support group based in Mexico City, comprised of young people who grew up in the United States and now find themselves in Mexico; and Soy Vida, a project in El Salvador, which works to reclaim public spaces and rebuild social fabric through youth-led urban art.
