Lets stop waiting for things to happen.
Get involved and make them happen.
Dream Educational Empowerment Program (DEEP):
DEEP addresses the barriers that could impede undocumented and immigrant youth and all young adults from pursuing their dreams and successfully contributing to their communities.
DEEP seeks to achieve our goals through College Access Workshops, educating school counselors, and through one on one peer-to-peer college advising.
Education Not Deportation (E.N.D.):
The END campaign is a national campaign to prevent the deportations of DREAM Act eligible youth and young adults, thereby allowing immigrant youth to continue their lives in the United States, pursue higher education and achieve their dreams. Immigrant communities have worked together for years to prevent community members from being detained or deported. In February 2011 the United We Dream (U.W.D.) Network joined these advocates and started END Campagin. The U.W.D. national organizing structure employs legal, media, and legislative resource to accomplish this goal.
An individual END campaign is initiated when a student is facing imminent deportation. END has a network of local immigrant youth organizations, which are instrumental in organizing the campaign for the student facing deportation or in detention and partners including Immigrant Legal Resource Center, NILC, and SEIU.
College Access Program
CT Students for a DREAM’s main goals are to Educate and Empower youth. We believe that immigration status should not be a barrier to achieving education. We want to improve access to higher education for immigrants. To realize these goals, we have launched our College Access Program. Our program addresses the barriers that could impede undocumented and immigrant youth and all young adults from pursuing their dreams and successfully contributing to their communities. We seek to achieve our goals through College Access Workshops, educating school counselors, and through one on one peer-to-peer college advising. (Learn more...)
The Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project (QUIP): Is one of the efforts under the United We DREAM umbrella launched around 2007. It focuses on the rights and struggles of undocumented immigrants who also identify as queer (an umbrella term for gender and sexual minorities). The goals of the project include educating the immigrant community on LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisesual, Transgender, Queer) issues, forming allies (both straight undocumented and queer documented), and pushing for equality policy.
