Introductory Profile: About Michael Y.

This is an interview with Michael, my dad, who is a professor at UT. We met in his office, a quaint sunlit room in central Austin. His strong belief in equality for all drove him to follow his passions and support the DREAMers in their never ending struggle

I interviewed him on his experiences working with DREAMers, the undocumented youth brought to America at a young age, and his involvement in their never-ending fight for justice. Michael speaks of his experiences working with DREAMers, and how the DREAMers struggle is “the Civil Rights Movement of our day.”
