It is the NYSYLC's pleasure to present our first ever UndocuQueer Summit! Queer immigrants have faced attacks on their identities and well-beings from various ends and not often are they given the space and opportunity to heal. We want to invite you to our place of healing for an exciting afternoon of introspection and community building!
The annual Immigrant Youth Empowerment Conference (IYECon) is an all day conference which aims to empower all youths and their families, regardless of their immigration status, by providing access to concrete resources and tools to organize within their communities.
In partnership with Atlas:DIY, The Healing Center, Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) and BYP 100 we're coming together for a series of events to shed light on the impact of sexual violence, how it intersects with our communities and all the ways YOU can join to end it.
Lets be real, we were fighting for justice in 2016 and will do the same in 2017. Join us at our office to plan for the year and strategize on ways to continue fighting for change and resisting oppression! This event is open to all even if you haven't been involved before. Bring a friend!
Now more than ever, immigrant youth need a space to connect with each other, share stories, find resources, heal, and build collective power. Educators need an opportunity to meaningfully support their students and to connect with each other and share questions and best practices. Join the New York State Youth Leadership Council and Teach Dream for this one day training.
IYECon is back again! Our theme this year is "Rooted in Liberation." This theme connects us to our migration history, the policies that forced many of us to come here or made it harder to seek a path to citizen, but also the we hope to continue building towards our joint liberation.
2016 marks the 7th year the NYSYLC Awards Program will provide monetary support to youth, regardless of their immigration status, who aspire to continue their higher education, being active in the immigrant rights movement and wish to continue their commitment in the coming years.
In the light of recent mainstream focus on the increase of immigration raids, we want to remind our community to stay alert and to be ready to fight back.
we are organizing a rally to express our solidarity with Syrian and Iraqi migrants who are seeking refuge in the United States. The right to seek refuge (or asylum) in another country is an enshrined human right under international law. #HRTrumpsOppression#StandUp4Syrians #StandUp4Iraqis
