|Your support for Voice of Witness helps share the stories of people like Lorena, whose moving narrative from Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives, can be read here. She left her home in Puebla, Mexico at the age of six, walking across the desert with her mother, stepfather, and two brothers.Â When asked about why she shared her story, Lorena explained:
“Being able to tell my story has provided me with a sense of existence that I didn’t have before. I’ve lived my life hoping I could inspire or motivate just one person. Having my story published has ensured that my experiences, struggles, and most importantly, victories are testaments about the power each person possesses within.”
