In addition to timely political campaigns, like our current 11 Million Dreams campaign for immigration reform, United We Dream also runs programs to advocate for access to higher education: stop the deportations of undocumented youth and their parents; and strengthen alliances and support for DREAMers at the intersection of queer and immigrant rights.
United We Dream has worked to stop the deportation of dozens of DREAMers and their families. If you’re in removal proceedings or have a family member or friend facing deportation, we may be able to help.

Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project
The Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project (QUIP) seeks to create alliances between the LGBTQ and immigrant rights movements and continue to build power, create change in our communities, and harness our power to win policy changes on issues that affect both groups.
QUIP aims to empower queer undocumented youth through the following strategies: providing leadership development; establishing spaces for healing and support for queer undocumented youth; creating a curriculum to educate our communities about the intersection between the immigrant and LGBTQ rights movements; and documenting the struggle of queer undocumented youth.
