Martin Lopez-Galicia
Youth Organizer
Georgia Undocumented Youth Alliance
Born August 22, 1991 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico and traveled from Mexico to Atlanta, GA in 1995 with my mother. I am undocumented and I have been involved with undocumented youth, dealing with deportations, mental therapy, communication, critical awareness through free and accessible education, and many other aspects. I have been involved and have had the pleasure of working along with Freedom University, The Georgia Undocumented Youth Alliance, and Dream Activist Georgia. I still continue and try to keep projects alive and well with weekly meeting in Downtown Atlanta every Tuesdays at 6pm. I still work as a day laborer (roofer) and I know without any illusion what I have to go back to, what my community goes through, and what people of color go through in America.
