As we have seen so much in the last few years — and especially in the last year — young people are often the vanguard of social progress.
Chicago high school students Isabela Ávila and Francisco Villaseñor are among that vanguard – they started their organization, the Coalition of Advocates for Undocumented Students’ Education, or CAUSE Chicago, to support undocumented CPS students when they saw a need going unfulfilled in their community.
Ávila and Villaseñor give us la ultima palabra on how they say anyone – even teenagers – can create the change they want to see in their communities.
And congratulations to Villaseñor, who graduated from Walter Payton High School this week and is headed to Pomona College in the fall.
