Ligia Trujillo is an immigrant from Bogota, Colombia. She came to the United States with her two children looking for a better life, and has lived here for 10 years. Although she came here looking for the ‘american dream,’ life has been hard and she has experienced discrimination and sexual harassment at work, which she never denounced due to fear from deportation. Although she is now a permanent resident and her children are grown up, she believes in continuing to fight for others who continue to fear immigration enforcement, especially against deportations. She is a mother and an organizer with Unidad Latina en Acción New Jersey, and believes that the only way change happens is that people must fight for their rights.
