A decade ago, three families came together to confront the largely invisible crisis of deportation. Together they broke the silence and overcame the isolation that many families face when one of their members is facing deportation. Creating an informal network focused on providing mutual support and education, the Shahani Family, Subhash Kateel, and Maria Muentes formed Families for Freedom (FFF). From these three founding families' vision grew the powerful organization we know today fighting on the frontlines of this nation's immigration debate. This is a slideshow of all the people involved over the past decade with Families for Freedom's work.
