PHOTOS: #TogetherJuntos Caravan Builds Momentum, Continues Outreach and Trainings During Second Week

 

The Texas #TogetherJuntos caravan this week continued its route this week along the U.S./Mexico border and stopped by a few more cities, including Corpus Christi and Houston.

The caravan has been on the road for the past two weeks, bringing local Texas communities together, teaching them about the state’s anti-immigrant law SB4, and providing residents information on how to defend their rights.

On Thursday, the caravan made its last stop in downtown Houston where a rally was held in front of City Hall. Community members came together to celebrate the caravan’s success and proclaim that the fight against SB4 is not over.

Guendi Castro, a Dreamer who’s been traveling with the caravan since it began on March 30th in El Paso said:

I joined this caravan for one thing and that is for the respect and the dignity of my community and my family and I wanted to show that no matter what happens, there’s always hope. Sometimes it just gets rough and we don’t know what to do but people like us come out and give you another chance in life.

I’m proud that we did this. I feel like the community is going to get out of the fear, they’re going to promote their rights and they’re going to make it better for everyone.
