Undocumented and Unafraid has emerged as a slogan for the new immigrant youth movement. No longer living in the shadows, undocumented students are coming out, organizing, advocating for change in immigration policy, and building a new civil rights movement. Two of the leaders of this movement, UCLA graduates Tam Tran and Cinthya Felix, were pursuing advanced degrees at Ivy League universities at the time of their tragic deaths in a car accident. This book is a tribute to Tam and Cinthya and captures the voices of a new generation who are making history and changing our country.
The book features:
* The Trail of Dreams: Immigrant youth and their supporters march from Miami to Washington, DC.
* Civil disobedience in the halls of Congress: Undocumented immigrant youth risk deportation to support the Dream Act.
* Immigrant youth coming out: Queer, Asian Pacific Islander, and Latina/o undocumented students share their stories.
