When you’re undocumented, you face a lot of discrimination, and that creates a lot of fear. At United We Dream, they transform that fear into finding your voice. United We Dream empowers people to develop their leadership, their organizing skills, and to develop its own campaigns to fight for justice and dignity for immigrants and all people. This is achieved through immigrant youth-led campaigns at the local, state, and federal level.
With a driving force of more than 400,000 members and an online reach of over 4,000,000 across the nation, it envisions a society based on human dignity that celebrates all of the communities. It understands that, in order to achieve this vision, how it does its work must be reflective of the kind of society we aim to create: multi-ethnic, interdependent, intersectional, and inter-generational, all connected and reliant upon one another to achieve the highest standards for our collective humanity and liberation.
