Producer, Educator & Writer
Since graduating from Penn, Erick Silva, 23, has been teaching. He currently teaches ninth-grade world history in San Jose, California. Silva is one of about 9,000 DACAmented teachers according to the Migration Policy Institute.
“It’s so weird how to some people, it’s just policy. To my community, its our lives,” says Silva. Teaching is his form of advocacy.
