Undocumented and unafraid: 67 Sueños (Dreams)

“There is no greater agony than carrying an untold story inside of you.” – Maya Angelou

I spent a day with Pablo Paredes and a few of the courageous immigrant youth with whom he works when I was in San Francisco in December. Pablo is AFSC program director for 67 Sueños, a youth-led program that works to make visible the stories and dreams of undocumented youth who are often left out of the immigration debate.
