Changed: how one deportation gave rise to a dreamer

Estefania Galarza is actually from my neighborhood, so I have an easier time seeing where she’s coming from. She’s involved with an organization called Faith In New York — a grassroots group trying to change communities through, among other things, faith. It’s not where Estefania thought she would end up: she was not very religious for much of her life. But a deportation changed all that, and now she’s a dedicated Catholic who tries to better others’ lives through not only faith but policy change as well.
