Event Details: 
Itzel Polo Mendieta was born in Mexico City and grew up in San Francisco Tetlanohcan, a small rural community with a high rate of citizens journeying to the United States, a process known as “out migration.” Currently, Itzel is working as a community organizer in Mexico City with The Other DREAMers, a group comprised of young returned migrants – some who were deported, others who returned voluntarily – who do not have the necessary support to re-integrate into Mexican society and the Mexican labor force. The Other DREAMers seek to increase access to education and create job opportunities for their constituency.
