My Fight For Youth Justice

If someone offered you $100,000 and two years to think deeply about how to solve a big problem, what problem would you tackle?

The November election was a reminder to Liberty Hill and its committed donor-activists that justice and equality are values we can never take for granted. The fight for immigrant rights is one of many we stand ready to take on. Today’s decision to terminate the DACA program is a heartbreaking blow to many young immigrants whose only aspiration is to achieve the American Dream through hard work and determination. Our city is a testament to the vitality and economic vibrancy that immigrants contribute, and we are stronger because of our immigrant communities.
