Abuleos y Nietos Juntos or Grandparents and Grandchildren Together, is a project that began through the inspiration of the struggles of the immigrant families living in Worthington, MN. We are dedicated to working together towards the reunification of families torn apart by our broken immigration system,and to give a voice to those most deeply affected by our current immigration laws.
