Gaby Pacheco talking about undocumented youth in the US
Gaby and three other students walked 1,500 miles from Miami to Washington, DC to bring attention to the barriers faced by undocumented young people and their families. For five months they overcame constant fear of arrest and deportation, anti-immigrant protesters including the Ku Klux Klan, physical exhaustion and homophobia. The Trail of DREAMs successfully inspired communities throughout the Southeast, as well as tens of thousands of other DREAMers and policymakers. In the year since the Trail concluded at the White House, the four walkers have remained outspoken leaders against the criminalization of immigrants and for humane immigration reform.
