Voces Sin Fronteras: Our Stories, Our Truth
NEW EDITION with a Foreword by award-winning author Meg Medina.
During a time of heated immigration debate and unrest, this book is an opportunity to hear directly from youth who are often in the headlines but whose stories don't get told in full. Sixteen young people from the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) in Washington, D.C. came together to tell their own stories of immigration and transformation in comics form. The result is this side-by-side bilingual collection of graphic memoirs that not only builds connections across language, but also breaks down barriers and expands hope.
The authors of this collection are members of the Latino Youth Leadership Council of the Latin American Youth Center in Washington, DC. This group of teen immigrants from Central America and the Caribbean are dedicated to promoting cross-cultural understanding and social justice in their community. The book was produced through a collaboration with Shout Mouse Press, a nonprofit writing program and publishing house for unheard voices. Learn more at shoutmousepress.org

About the Author
"Courage is what strikes me most about this collection of artwork and writing... These young authors - and the thousands like them who are caught in this crisis - offer us their honesty to help us understand more fully what is at stake. I applaud their courage. I celebrate their resilience. I am, in fact, in awe of all that they are. And I am proud to stand with them." -- Meg Medina
