Roberto Lopez lives in Kearny, New Jersey working as an independent writer for Spanish language newspapers and is an organizer with Unidad Latina en Acción New Jersey. He migrated to the United States in 1993 and lived undocumented for seven years, experiencing exploitation by his employers. He became involved in fighting for immigrant rights when his sister’s husband was deported. His brother in law was detained by immigration agents while he was working, and was deported immediately. “This left my sister alone with her three children, living in constant fear of living the same fait. I am doing this action for her, and for the families that I see with my work with the community every day.”

By collectively challenging unfair deportations and unjust policy through organizing, art, legislation, and action, we aim to reverse criminalization, build migrant power, and create immigration policies based on principles of inclusion.
