About UWD’s Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project
The Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project (QUIP), a program of United We Dream seeks to organize and empower Undocumented Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer immigrants, LGBTQ immigrants and allies to address social and systemic barriers that affect themselves and the broader LGBTQ & immigrant community.
QUIP’s vision is to transform the immigrant and LGBTQ movements, to adopt an intersectional analysis in their efforts to advance and build power for the rights of both communities. Through QUIP’s work we hope to shift the consciousness and public opinion of immigrants and LGBTQ communities that result in collaboration and embracement towards each other.
QUIP implements its vision through the following strategies:
- Individual leadership/chapter coaching & development.
- Engage in targeted campaigns that affect the immigrant and LGBTQ community and lifts up an intersectional analysis.
- Raise the consciousness of immigrant and LGBTQ rights organizations through campaign engagements that promote interaction and collaboration between both communities.
- Build the capacity of immigrant youth organizations to engage in LGBTQ organizing and advocacy.
