Undocumented. Unafraid. (No Tenemos Miedo)

$20

After Arizona’s governor signed an anti-immigrant bill, SB 1070 into law in April 2010, making it legal to racially profile in the state, a movement of organizers around the country rose up to fight it. I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona on Mother’s Day as part of a women’s delegation to document the women and children of the local grassroots movement. At one of the marches, I photographed a young Latina girl in the crowd and developed this poster. She was holding the sign over her head and it made me laugh for a moment because the sign was almost as tall as her. I then realized that this girl, was claiming her own political voice at an early age—not because of any fault of her own, but because she is growing up at a time when her family and community members are criminalized simply for wanting a better life. The words I used, “Undocumented. Unafraid” is a term that was born in the immigrant youth movement.
