The Wall of DREAMs

Between March 5th and 6th, Julio drew nearly 100 portraits of the many participants/attendees at the United We Dream congress in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Science of DREAM

A dance between undocumented youth and the federal DREAM Act that’s lasted for the past 10 years. It’s been a long decade. Please call your senators and press for a vote in favor of the DREAM Act this lame duck season. Us DREAMers are counting on you.
