Meeting a celebrity at the start of the school bell… is not an everyday thing. But it’s exactly what happened this morning at Copper Canyon High School. An event put on by “Mi Familia Vota” challenged schools to compete against each other to see who could register the most students to vote. The winning school would earn a visit from Diane Guerrero. Student Body President Narda Lizarraga says she promoted the competition with her peers… and the momentum picked up immediately. Guerrero took the chance to share her personal story with students. At age 14, she came home to find her parents gone. Her mother and father were detained and deported to Colombia. She made the decision to stay in America and fight for her dreams to honor her parents. Today’s event was just one of her many efforts to advocate for Latino civic engagement and immigration reform.
