Listen: Latino Advocates in the South urge us to be “beacons of light” for unaccompanied child migrants

August 2, 2014

Earlier this month in Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia, SPIN Academy convened a meeting of organizers and advocates working on immigration issues across the South; a sort of summer camp to learn effective communications skills and storytelling strategies for their organizations.AudioTeam@SPINSouth

One of the “tactics teams” worked to create an audio story. The five Latino advocates in our group came from four Southern states (their names are listed below). Each remembered how it felt when they traveled to the US as children and what it meant to have someone, a “beacon of light”, who welcomed them and made a difference in their lives. In making the piece, the advocates hoped that other Americans would offer assistance to unaccompanied children from Central America.
