The Caravan

As a storyteller and immigration rights activist, Paola’s work tried to shine a light on each person’s unique and individual story of love, resilience and hope. These are their truths.

Paola traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico to join the caravan of Central American refugees to document their stories as they traveled to the U.S. border in hopes of being granted asylum.

It was during this time that Trump overhauled the asylum application process and made it more difficult for refugees to even request the asylum they are so desperately in need of.
