In her own words and voice, meet Luisa:
"Luisa Ortiz-Garza born in Mexico City, raised in Guadalajara Jalisco. I immigrated to Canada in 2006. My partner and I were without status for the first 13 years living in Canada, we have 2 kids. I have been an activist and community organizer since 2016. I have a degree in visual arts from the Universidad de Guadalajara, and I am currently enrolled in Indigenous Studies. My interests are advocating for residents without full immigration status that face significant barriers when accessing essential city services, such as education, emergency services, social housing, food banks, etc. I am passionate about social justice and last year I co-created a space for and by undocumented and former people without status living in the city."
