Mission

United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led community in the country. We create welcoming spaces for young people – regardless of immigration status – to support, engage, and empower them to make their voice heard and win! Over 60% of our members are womxn and 20% identify as LGBTQ. Our vision is a society which celebrates our diversity and we believe in leading a multi-ethnic, intersectional path to get there. Whether we’re organizing in the streets, building cutting edge technology systems, opening doors for LGBTQ immigrant youth, clearing pathways to education, stopping deportations or creating alliances across social movements, United We Dream puts undocumented immigrant youth in the driver’s seat to strategize, innovate and win.

Intersectional Leadership Development

United We Dream and our local branches are fully committed to create the next generation of leaders. Through our trainings and convenings, we are building a sustainable grassroots organizing/advocacy movement at the local, regional, & national levels, informed by an intersectional/racial justice lens, & providing transformative leadership development & tools & resources to support our leaders & member organizations.

Population(s) Served

Adolescents

UWD works to secure policies that protect our communities and defend our local victories through organizing, strategic communications, advocacy, and direct action strategies.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Multiracial people

Our leaders apply a healing methodology and racial justice lens to our work; we will hold healing retreats regionally for staff and volunteer leaders involved in deportation defense work, and convene community gatherings—on line, by webinar, call, or in person—for support, healing, training, and strategy. We have begun offering healing and wellness workshops: our UndocuHealth program provides a safe space for immigrant youth to express and make sense of their feelings, and teach a number of techniques-- from breathing exercises to spiritual Native American practices, to support them in coping with stress or feelings of anxiety and depression. We continue to provide know-your-rights (KYRs) sessions on immigration, direct action organizing, mental health, and alliance building. We build relationships across diverse immigrant groups and with allies engaged in the broader fight for racial and social justice, and to counter feelings of isolation while strengthening the fight for justice.

Population(s) Served
Immigrants and migrants
Adolescents

UWD’s culture change strategies are imagined and led by communities directly
impacted by deportation, detention and policing, including immigrant youth, youth
of color, and LGBTQ+ youth. In our vision, multi-racial communities across the United
States know and believe that our lives are intertwined. All people, including
immigrants, are free to choose their home and no matter where we live, we are
welcomed and cared for. In order to create the political and cultural conditions for
this world, we are driving key culture change strategies with immigrant youth and youth of color millennials and Gen Z as our key audiences.
