So, this past Saturday Juana Guzman, Daniel, our ULI president, and I attended The "MALDEF Conversation with Hilda Solis" convention in San Antonio, TX.
For those of you wondering who in the heck Hilda Solis is, she is The U.S Secretary of Labor.
A short description of what her office entitles her to do is to oversee what all of the workers are legally protected and treated well by their employers. She makes sure that employers stick to the laws. She also helps create laws that protect employees when they are being abused of, neglected, underpaid, under age and so forth.
A little info about MALDEF. They are a national organization that pretty much takes on the tough job of being "The Latino Legal Voice for Civil Rights." They kindly hosted Hilda Solis in SA to ask her pertinent questions about immigration.

Hello and regards,
My name is Daniel Candelaria Olvera, I am the current President of University Leadership Initiative, and I am undocumented and unafraid. Before we go on I would like you guys to think about the statement I just made of being “undocumented AND unafraid”… What does it mean to be undocumented and unafraid and why am I making that statement?
Come one, and come all! This month ULI will be holding a fundraiser concert featuring opening band Kalua and headliners Huerta Culture. This event will take place Sunday, September 25, 2011 at Esquina Tango (209 Pedernales Street, 78702). The tickets are priced at $10 with all proceeds going towards scholarships for immigrant youth entering the University of Texas at Austin. This concert also highlights the 10 year anniversary of in-state tuition in Texas for the immigrant youth, which has allowed Dream Act students to attend college without the burden of impossibly high tuition fees. Be sure to check out the concert flyer below.
