My father is one of the rocks that holds the Yonkers community in New York together.
In a city where extracurricular activities were not accessible to youth of color, my father co-founded the Espiritu de Mexico Ballet Folklorico dance group. For the past 20 years, he has worked hard to create a safe space for our youth to take risks, create art and most importantly, to dream big.
Right now my father is sitting at a detention center, isolated from my family and the community that loves him dearly. We miss him so much! I need your help to get my father back home where he belongs.
Please help me keep my father home. My family needs him. My community needs him.
