Bio: Julio Cesar Sanchez

Julio Cesar Sanchez lives in Chicago, IL and has been living in the U.S. for nine years. He came to the U.S. at the age of 15 with his mother after his parents’ divorce, despite a difficult border crossing. His mother sought to reunite with her family here and get away from a domestic violence situation.  He faced discrimination and bullying when he first arrived in Texas at school, and, while living in Florida, was put in jail for driving without a license.  These experiences made him decide to take action for his community.  He now organizes with the immigrant community in Chicago teaching people their rights. He says, “I’m riding the Undocubus to show myself, my family, and everyone else that is dealing with the same struggle I am that we can make a change. I believe it is time to end our fear.”
