Stories of Youth Impacted by Immigration
The immigration and incarceration systems have impacted thousands of families in the United States through the harsh and unjust policies our country has created. The separation of families has been a huge issue for generations. However, the perspective of the youth is often silenced. We are youth from all over the Bay Area, born in this country, with different family ancestral roots. Recognizing our immigrant roots has helped push us to make change.
We The Youth Zine was created to help inform youth on the immigration system and its policies. In addition, we hope to educate others on this country’s immigration history through colonialism and imperialism. Through the different stories you will read in this zine, we hope to create unity and strength within others who share similar experiences.
