Heldáy de la Cruzwww.heldaydelacruz.com/
Heldáy de la Cruz is a Mexican illustrator, designer, and activist based in Portland, OR. Born in Jalisco, Mexico, Heldáy and his family immigrated to Oregon when he was just 2 years old. He is a recipient of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) - an immigration policy that provides undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children eligibility to legally live and work in the U.S. As a queer, Mexican, undocumented individual, Heldáy's work offers a unique perspective on life in the United States. Heavily influenced by his experience, his work explores the intersectionality of the multiple communities he lives in and identifies with. Increasingly, Heldáy has been using his art as a platform for social change. He has been inspired into activism by the 2016 election, his experience volunteering at Standing Rock Reservation protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, and his own threatened status given the uncertain future of the DACA program. Heldáy explained in a recent interview with AIGA Portland, “I almost feel like everything that I post or talk about needs to be politically or socially relevant now. I definitely feel like my own priorities have shifted.” True to that statement, in the past few years Heldáy has spoken at rallies protesting the elimination of DACA, organized an art show to support DACA defense, and helped to put on a Portland music festival supporting Pueblo Unido - a Portland Charity providing legal defense for undocumented immigrants facing deportation.
Pueblo Unido PDX (Portland, OR)
Pueblo Unido PDX is a Portland-based organization that provides legal counseling services and client advocacy for immigrants facing deportation. The organization connects individuals with skilled legal representatives to help them build their case against removal.

As a Mexican immigrant living in Portland, Pueblo Unido holds special significance to Heldáy and the vulnerable communities he works so tirelessly to protect. BANDITS is honored to help support Heldáy, Pueblo Unido, and their ongoing fight for the essential human rights of ALL people.
