I’m Laura Santos-Elvires, I’m a Sophomore at Washington High School in Sioux Falls South Dakota. The #1 issue that I care about is racial discrimination. I care about this issue because as a daughter of Salvadoran immigrants I know what it’s like to look different, talk different, and be treated differently. I’ve been discriminated in stores, school, and even in the streets of my own neighborhood. Something that I wish people knew about me is that I participated in the South Dakota Voices for Peace Cohort of Courage program over the summer, and was interviewed on a local news station.
