THE STORY:

I support National Justice for Our Neighbors (NJFON) because I have a tremendous responsibility to my community. Now more than ever, it is imperative that every one of us steps up to the play and provide any help possible. As a teacher, I am in constant communication with families that need some type of legal assistance and I am happy that every time that happens I am able to direct them to NJFON. Continuing these services is extremely important not only to my immediate community in Dallas, but for our entire community across the nation.

I take these efforts very personally. I benefit from DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Executive actions are in danger by the eminent threat of the new administration. I am able to be in front of my students every day because of it. It sounds crazy to even say this but I have two years to figure this out. My life has been ruled by two-year intervals since 2012 and although I am thankful for the opportunity to work every day, it weighs heavy on my conscience.

I must keep teaching. I must remain in the classroom because I am incredibly committed to my school, my students and their families. My job and my future are at jeopardy in my country. I will remain fighting and I will continue sharing my story because it matters. This election cycle made some damage and it is time for us to begin the healing process. I am doing my part in the classroom, one pencil at a time. NJFON has allowed me to give back in a very important way and that is why I support it!

Yo apoyo a NJFON porque siento una gran sentido de responsabilidad hacia mi comunidad. Ahora mas que nunca, es imperativo que todos nosotros salgamos adelante y proveamos ayuda en cualquier manera posible. Como maestro, yo estoy en constante comunicación con familias que necesitan algún tipo de ayuda legal y me da mucho gusto que cada vez los puedo dirigir a NJFON. La continuación de estos servicios es extremadamente importante no solo para mi comunidad inmediata en Dallas, sino que también para toda nuestra comunidad a lo largo de la nación.

Estos esfuerzos son muy personales. Yo me beneficio de DACA, Acción Diferida. Las acciones ejecutivas están en peligro por la amenaza eminente de la próxima administración. Yo puedo ser maestro y estar en frente de mis estudiantes diariamente por esta acción ejecutiva. Suena impresionante pero solo tengo dos años para encontrar una solución. Desde el 2012, mi vida ha sido guiada por periodos de dos años y aunque estoy muy agradecido por la oportunidad, preocupa. Yo debo seguir enseñando. Yo debo seguir en el salón porque estoy increíblemente comprometido con mi escuela, mis estudiantes y sus familias. Mi trabajo y mi futuro están en peligro en mi país. Seguiré luchando y compartiendo mi historia porque es importante. Este ciclo de elección ha causado mucho daño y es tiempo de comenzar a sanar. Yo estoy poniendo de mi parte, un lápiz a la vez. ¡NJFON me he permitido ayudar a mi comunidad de una manera muy importante y por eso lo apoyo!
