Julio Salgado (he/him) is a visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. He is the co-founder of DreamersAdrift and the Migrant Storytelling Manager for The Center for Cultural Power. His status as an undocumented, queer artivist has informed the content of his visual art, which depict key individuals and moments of the DREAM Act and the migrant rights movement. Undocumented students, organizers, and allies across the country have used Salgado’s artwork to call attention to the migrant rights movement. Salgado is the co-creator of The Disruptors Fellowship, an inaugural fellowship for emerging television writers of color who identify as trans/and or non-binary, disabled, undocumented, and/or formerly undocumented immigrants. Salgado's work has been shown at the Oakland Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Smithsonian.
