UIUC Student Andrea Rosales Among Georgia 7 Arrested Protesting for Immigrant Rights

Andrea Rosales was brought to the United States at the age of 5. She is currently a 22 year old college senior and will be receiving her Bachelor’s in Sociology and Latino Studies this May. With graduation soon approaching, Andrea finds herself unable to use her degree to give back to the community that nurtured her. She is currently organizing for the empowerment of undocumented youth with the Immigrant Youth Justice League in Illinois. Tired of waiting for politicians to act, she believes the time has come to take action.

Andreas is among seven undocumented youth were arrested at Georgia State University! All seven are being taken to the Atlanta Detention Center. Please use the links below to help raise awareness, petition, and give $ to get them out on bail ASAP.
