Through a poetic lens, Yosimar Reyes presents a comedic conversation about what it means to be undocumented in today's political system. Drawing from personal anecdotes, Reyes takes us on a journey of self-empowerment and perseverance, providing insight into the ways undocumented communities continue to build lives despite adversities. 

Yosimar Reyes is a nationally-acclaimed poet and public speaker. Born in Guerrero, Mexico, and raised in Eastside San Jose, Reyes's work explores themes of migration and sexuality. The Advocate named Reyes one of "13 LGBT Latinos Changing the World" and Remezcla included Reyes on their list of "10 Up and Coming Latinx Poets You Need To Know."
