"This is a place for compassionate human possibility -- where no person is illegal, where our students are valued and loved for their intrinsic human dignity."
“Our undocumented students are now taking on leadership roles and leading their peers in activities, fundraisers, and other organizing at the district level across schools.” — Karen Martinez, Parent Center Manager at Cindy Avitia High School
Through our high school partnerships, Immigrants Rising enhances institutional support for undocumented high school students and their families in the Bay Area. We provide ongoing training and support to our partner high schools to ensure that educators and administrators have the knowledge, training, and guidance necessary to support undocumented students in their access to higher education and career opportunities.
