How can we change the world?

In San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico, more than 50 migrant youth came together to share their stories and experiences through their words, art, and friendship.

After hearing the youth tell their stories, we asked them: How can we change the world for the better? In response, youth from across Latin America and the United States share what they believe we need to do just that.

Creative practices
and affection.

Love.

Tranquility.

Hope.

In their words, learn how these incredible young people are supporting migrant communities.
