We are happy to release a poster made by undocumented, queer artist Julio Salgado commemorating IYJL’s third anniversary. Remember to buy tickets to our January 26th celebration!
Julio Salgado is the co-founder of DreamersAdrift.com. His status as an undocumented, queer artivist has fueled the contents of his illustrations, which depict key individuals and moments of the undocumented youth movement. Undocumented students and allies across the country have used Salgado’s artwork to call attention to the youth-led movement. Members of the Immigrant Youth Justice League have had a deep impact on Salgado and have inspired a lot of his work. Salgado graduated from California State Universitiy, Long Beach with a degree in journalism.
To see more of his artwork and other collaborations, you can go to juliosalgado83.tumblr.com.
We also hear he thinks IYJL is “awesome.”
