The UndocuBlack Network

Vision: UBN is a multigenerational network of currently and formerly undocumented people, with shared visions of an inclusive immigrant & racial justice movements that advocate for the rights of Black undocumented individuals. UBN’s mission is to “Blackify” the country’s understanding of the undocumented population and to facilitate access to resources for the Black undocumented community.

Impact: UBN is building local chapters in NY, LA and DC, and also establishing a mental wellness initiative to underscore and address trauma in immigrant communities. Additionally, UBN is working with several partners to create resources or adjust current ones, so they are accessible to the Black undocumented community.
