Antonio: “We Need To Stand Up And Organize!”

"We can't keep waiting for politicians or for others to change these unfair policies and just like we need to change the immigration laws nationally, we also need to stand up to IIT’s administration and tell them that we are here, we are IIT, we are IIT’s future and we won’t hide anymore. We need to stand up and organize. My name is Antonio Gutierrez, I’m undocumented, queer, and I am IIT."

Privilege demands action!
