JoelCSati posted a topic in Dream LoungeHello All, My name is Joel Sati, and I am an undocumented student from Kenya. I have been working in the movement for about two years, and I have been inspired by the movement for immigration reform. More importantly, I have been inspired by the many stories that make the fabric of this movement. In that respect, I am looking for prose or poetry from the undocumented community to be part of a blog/manuscript titled Unafraid, Unapologetic: Stories of Undocumented America to be released at a later date. As the title indicates, the focus is on being undocumented and the struggles that come with it. - Submission Guidelines Poetry and ProseProseAll languages accepted (English translations of each work should accompany non-English submissions.)
