Jill Anderson, Otros Dreams en Acción Community Space in Mexico City

Date grant awarded: 4/22/2017

Otros Dreams an Acción (ODA) builds networks and opportunities for the mutual support and empowerment of deported youth in Mexico. This is an effort to create a community space in Mexico City where people can come together in the aftermath of deportation and trauma.

We will buy up-cycled furniture (two desks, chairs, a small sofa, a small table), computer equipment, and a subscription to a virtual platform for high quality webinars and virtual meetings.

A community space near a call center in Mexico City, with the potent combo of comfy furniture and powerful technology, promises to ground our community in order to continue to build transborder connections in the aftermath of deportation and return.
