Coming Out of the Shadows 2013



Feb 13


March is Coming Out of the Shadows Undocumented & Unafraid Month!

We’re very excited because for the fourth consecutive year we will be holding events for undocumented youth and community members to share their stories, to give a face to the immigration debate and to break free from the fear and shame.

If you want for your story to be displayed on our website, please submit your story here.

Coming out is a process so it is okay if you do not feel ready to share your story in such a big way, you’re welcome to come and be there for support to others. These coming out events will be filled with stories, music, poems, dance and many more performances. They are open to the public regardless of immigration status. Bring family and friends!
