Read what we have done this year to transform fear and uncertainty into hope and opportunity for undocumented young people nationwide.
Our team analyzed ten years of online legal intakes for close to 3,000 undocumented immigrants to identify trends and develop recommendations in the areas of education, immigration relief, criminal justice, and more.
“Their parents encourage them to keep their heads low, not share their stories, not speak out about immigration issues,” said Katharine Gin, executive director of Immigrants Rising, a San Francisco-based advocacy organization that works with undocumented youth. "Especially if they’re not from Mexico or other parts of Latin America, no one suspects them of being undocumented.”
“We basically had a piece of legislation that gave us a purpose — gave us energy,” said Dean Santos, who works at Immigrants Rising, a San Francisco nonprofit that helps undocumented young people achieve their career and educational goals. DACA “helped define us and started getting some of us involved in fighting for our rights. But honestly, there’s still not enough involvement.”
