HELP ME STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY IN MY 8 MONTH WALK ACROSS AMERICA.
Goal: $2,000.00                        Raised: $250.00
Updated: 3/7/12 5:15am
Money will be used for shoes, food and basic survival. Remember, I left my job, got rid of all my stuff, said good-bye to my mother and only have a few bags to my name. Your financial support is not only appreciated, but it will go to my survival. Help to ensure that I stay safe and healthy throughout this time.

WATCH MY VIDEO. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND CAN STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH ME. My name is Alex Aldana, born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and I’m representing the hard-working immigrant community from the Coachella Valley, in Southern California. I am one ofthe guest walkers that will follow the Campaign for an American Dream (CAD)!Proud to be an undocumented queer activist, I will embark on an amazing walk across the United States with my partner Nicolas Gonzales, pushing for the DREAM Act by empowering over 200 communities.

I truly believe the DREAM Act will benefit millions of undocumented immigrant youth and families in this country.The falling standards of the Immigration systemin the United States have impacted by community greatly in the past decades.
The disparities and intersections that face millions of immigrant communities on health, education, workforce, and social justice have hurt not only the Latino community, but many other immigrant communities, often violating our human rights.After seeing my mother work on the arduous farm fields, and other hard work, I realized that Living from these oppressions, such as myself, being queer and undocumented, gave me the courage and empowerment to seeking higher education through hands-on work in the community.
Being brought at the age of 15, has definitely impacted my opportunities to continue my education and qualifications to be a DREAM eligible student, and puts into perspective those hundreds of immigrant undocumented youth that often have to give up their higher education DREAMS after high school to sustain their basic needs of survival.
There are hundreds of incredible stories of amazing youth who just want to continue their education or give back to this country. I will be proudly one of the many voices along with the 4 walkers, that will rise up to advocate and continue the dialogue around the DREAM Act and redefine the immigrant power of this country.That’s why I kindly ask for your SUPPORT to help me stay SAFE and HEALTHYthroughout the 8 month walk from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C.!I understand that we are going through tough economic times, but all I ask is that you please donate anything starting from $5 -$10I’m hoping to raise at least $2,000 before March 10,2012, which is when the walk begins.FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN FOR AN AMERICAN DREAM, VISIT:www.cadwalk2012.org

Alex Aldana is queer undocumented immigrant rights activist that works as a national/community organizer with a vibrant and very raw/uncensored opinion in the myriad of intersectionalities that impact the Immigrant Youth Movement (DREAMers) and brings strategy and direct action to create a new dialogue & truly bring social justice and equality within the LGBTQ/Immigrant movement. Alex migrated from Guadalajara,Mexico to the United States when he was 16 in 2003 to the beautiful dunes of the Coachella Valley. Greaduated from La Quinta high School in 2005 and not having the stability most middle families have, and experiencing dometic violence in the household,he went on with life and decided to support his mother and sister to work in the farm fields picking grapes and embracing the soil and the culture of the farm worker, construction work, and other opportunities that would help them survive. Alex’s only higher education has been deep-rooted by and for the community: Impacted by the scarce resources in the Coachella valley, he decided to get involved as health advocate for Latino LGBTQ youth, doing HIV/AIDS prevention, education and treatment through social justice, advocacy and empowerment to immigrant communities impacted and oppressed in Southern California. Alex worked as an HIV Counselor, Case Manager and Queer mentor with Bienestar Human Services providing services to Latino LGBTQ youth in Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino County since 2007. At a local, state and national level , he has contributed with conferences and rallies addressing LGBTQ issues in school districts (Queer Youth Advocacy Day 2008) , marriage equality (Prop 8 campaign), Immigrant rights (May Day March 2010 Queer youth contingent) and representing HIV services for undocumented immigrants at The United States Conference on AIDS in 2011.His devoted contribution at a local level in his community was to create the first lgbtq latino group in the Coachella Valley in 2011. Aldana’s liberation by “Coming out of the shadows” was followed by an action in San Bernardino, CA in 2012 along with the Immigrant Youth Coalition, Where he was arrested protesting against “secure communities/287g” outside of city hall to empower immigrant communities that live in fear because such laws. After coming out publicly with his immigration status he joined the Campaign for an American DREAM, a walking across the country from San Francisco to DC where 5 undocumented students empowered communitites & pushed to stop the massive deportations of DREAM act elegible youth and families President Obama executed and separated in his term. He also organized the hunger strike and occupation at the Obama for America office in Denver,CO on June of the same year, asking for an executive order which replicated across the country and put pressure to issue the Deffered Action for Childhood arrivals a week after the mobilization. Recent work in Albuquerque, NM included organizing the first national encuentro for The Association of Joteria,Arts,Activism and Scholarship (AJAAS) mobilizing undocumented queer youth from the border states of California, Arizona, and Texas. He will continue to address human rights violations and justice with the intersections of his work on HIV prevention, LGBTQ issues, Education, and Immigration along with radical activist groups that cannot and will no longer remain dormant in the shadows.
