Lifting the voices of immigrant youth

This is a short profile of Saul Aleman, the American Friends Immigrant Services intern at the AFSC Miami Office. Saul works with young people in South Florida and across the state to support the development of new leaders and to provide opportunities for the migrant community to tell their stories. Saul co-founded Homestead Equal Rights for All (ERA) and organizes in his own community of Homestead, FL.

Elmo's Garden (Carlos "Elmo" Gomez)

Carlos "Elmo" Gomez began working with AFSC through the "Roots for Peace" program at his high school. To help address the need for fresh produce in the Mar Vista Gardens housing project, Elmo’s class turned an unsightly, weed-filled lot into an organic garden. The garden proved so successful that AFSC’s Roots for Peace program soon expanded to two additional schools. This year, Elmo returned to AFSC as an intern, pursuing a dream to bring a garden plot to every residential unit in Mar Vista Gardens.
