transforming schools into safe and welcoming spaces for undocumented students and families
ImmSchools is an immigrant-led nonprofit organization that partners with K-12 educators to transform schools into safe and welcoming spaces for undocumented students and families.OUR PROGRAMOUR ONE-PAGERour hope
We envision a just and equitable education system where immigrant and undocumented students and families thrive.
Through ongoing professional learning for educators, workshops for undocumented students and families, and organizing for the passage of immigrant-friendly policies in K-12 school districts, ImmSchools seeks to create a learning environment where all students, regardless of their immigration status, can achieve their fullest potential.
Research indicates that students need a safe and supportive learning environment in order to learn.
Immigrant students and families show a unique resilience and have endless potential as they navigate the K-12 system. For immigrant students, the perceived and real fear of losing their parents to deportation can have a detrimental impact in their well-being and academic success. As former undocumented students, we know that when educators create a safe and supportive learning environment, the likelihood for success is greater.
ImmSchools creates a supportive net for immigrant and undocumented communities in K-12 schools by 1) partnering with educators to establish schools as safe havens, a Constitutional Right; 2) empowering families as leaders and embracing students as change agents, and 3) advocating for immigrant friendly policies within the K-12 system.
Educators have the knowledge, skills, and capacity to support undocumented students and families.
Schools and local organizations work in partnership to support undocumented students and families.
School districts pass and implement effective immigrant-friendly policies and resolutions.
Immigrant and undocumented students and families thrive in the K-12 system.
