Let’s Talk

Are you undocumented? Tell us why you’re sharing your story with the world, the challenges you face, and what you still need to do to achieve your personal “American dream.” Are you an ally to an undocumented American still in the shadows? Describe why you’re their ally, how they inspire you, and the ways you want to help. Have you already come out as undocumented? Share your reasons for coming out, the reaction of your allies when you came out, and what has happened since. Your story may help the next person build the courage to come out of the shadows!
