Immigrant Youth Forum “Coming Out” in Chapel Hill

Earlier today, a group of high school students publicly declared their undocumented status in downtown Chapel Hill. The students are from the Immigrant Youth Forum, a youth group facilitated by the NC Dream Team. I’ve been documenting the group as part of this project, today represented the coming together of months of preparation—both logistical and emotional—by the youth. They can be shy, fun-loving and, well, kids, but today you see how they reached people, and themselves, with emotional testimony about crossing the border and coping with deportations. I’ll video of the event up in my next post.
