Galería de la Raza is pleased to present Pedagogy of Hope: Uncage, Reunify, Heal, a textile and photographic based exhibition that surveys the Caravan for the Children Campaign (The Caravan).

The Caravan launched in January 2021 as a national 100-day effort to demand the release, reunification, and healing of migrant children separated from their families at the US–Mexico Border due to the 45th Presidential Administration’s 2018 Zero Tolerance Policy. The goal was to raise awareness of the issue and have it addressed within President Biden’s Immigration Plan.

Entering its second year, The Caravan continues its call to uncage, reunify, and heal the migrant children that have been separated. Forcibly removing children from their families for economic or political gains has a historical precedent now being repeated and practiced at the US–Mexico Border. Pedagogy of Hope: Uncage, Reunify, Heal asks you to join in The Caravan’s efforts and to memorialize the history of hope and resilience. Through joyful imagery, song, and poetry we re-establish the humanity in migrant children and their families, and their right to freely move in their pursuit of happiness.
