Moises Serrano is an undocumented activist who has lived most of his life in Yadkin County, NC. His journey as an organizer began three years ago when he decided to publicly reveal his immigration status in order to highlight the need in our communities for the passing of the DREAM Act. After the failure of the DREAM Act he became a part of the National Coordinating Committee for United We Dream whose campaign in 2011 and 2012 was Administrative Relief or Deferred Action. Since the first moment he “came out of the shadows” he has relentlessly shared his story across the state to try to dispel the myths around the undocumented community. As a publicly gay man, Moises’ mission is to unite the immigration and LGBTQ movements, seeing them both as a struggle for human rights. Photo credit: Kayley Mull
