Back in February, I wrote about Felipe Matos, the Brazilian activist spearheading the Trail of Dreams. This week, he arrived in Washington with three other activists from Miami, along with four activists from New York, who started their own march. The Miami group walked 1,500 miles, through rain and snow, facing Klansmen and angry protesters, and finally reached DC, where they hope to plead their case before Obama himself.
Check out more details about the journey and the Trail of Dreams (I recommend the Post piece in particular). Hopefully I will hear back from Felipe this week with some more details about his experience and his plans for the future to share here on the blog.
