If you think that young people are disconnected from public policymaking, you need to reconsider your assumptions. United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led nonprofit in the nation is on the frontlines of advocacy and activism for undocumented immigrants. Staff and members are youth for whom immigration, detention, deportation, enforcement and citizenship are both personal and political. Their hard work has been instrumental in organizing for passage of the Dream and Promise Act and against federal funding of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. United We Dream also builds pipelines of leadership for the future. And Sanaa and her network of leaders are active both on Capitol Hill and in states where the stakes are highest, including New Mexico, Texas, Florida and Maryland. These are change makers to watch and learn from.
