Fundraiser Details

Hello! 

My name is Lizbeth Mateo and I'm undocumented, I was born in Oaxaca and raised in Los Angeles. 

As some of you may already know, I started law school on August 13, only days after being released from the Eloy Detention Center in Arizona, where I spent a total of 17 days detained with 8 other Dreamers (#Dream9). 
 
While I was given a partial scholarship, it will not be enough to cover tuition and books. A day before crossing the border with the Dream 9 in Nogales I paid part of my tuition, but only enough to secure my spot at Santa Clara School of Law. I still owe a considerable amount of money. 
 
Attending law school has always been a dream of mine, and I had been forced to put it off for financial reasons and the uncertainty of not having legal status. But I am absolutely determined to make this happen and to enjoy every minute of it, even when things get tough. So I am asking for your help. I want to do this for myself, for my family, and for my community. I want to do it for the people that my family and I left behind when we moved to this country; those who I hope to see again someday, and those who are no longer here but who watch over us from a better place. 

Would you help me make this a reality? I cannot thank you enough for your support!!
