Catalina Morales lives in the United States under the protection of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), but she’s much more than just a ‘dreamer.’ In her talk about what it means to be an immigrant, Catalina reminds us all of something much more important: what it means to be human. Catalina Morales Bahena was raised in Waukegan, IL. Catalina immigrated to the United States from Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico with her parents and two older sisters. Catalina has lived in the United States since 1993 and was undocumented until she was granted DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status in 2013. Catalina is currently a Lead Organizer at ISAIAH, a state- wide community organization, which empowers people of faith to work on racial and economic justice issues. She is the lead staff on their immigrant justice campaigns, and she organizes a state-wide multi-racial base. Last year, she led the successful campaign to create an immigrant legal defense fund in Hennepin County.
