“I appreciate us being here. We are not supposed to be doing this. We are not supposed to organize. We are not supposed to rise up. But we are.” – Sheila Quintana PA youth leader, 2015

Pennsylvania is our home, regardless of where we come from. We want to make our home a better place for our families and immigrant communities. We want to bring immigrant youth together and create a statewide youth led movement. We are young, full of energy and ready to create change. We are the next generation of immigrant rights leaders and advocates!”  youth leader, 2016
