Dream Project of Virginia
The Dream Project, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization registered in the state of Virginia, empowers students whose immigration status creates barriers to education by working with them to access and succeed in college through scholarships, mentoring, family engagement, and advocacy. The start-up nonprofit has created an intentionally inclusive community where students are encouraged to use education as a vehicle to pursue their dreams and achieve their fullest potential.
The UndocuBlack Network (UBN) is a multigenerational network of currently and formerly undocumented Black people that fosters community, facilitates access to resources, and contributes to transforming the realities of our people, so we are thriving and living our fullest lives.
They do this by:
Developing the leadership of our members through tools, training and programming
Building power with and for our communities through advocacy, local organizing, and cultivating strategic alliances to advance policies that affect our daily lives.
Centering the humanity, dignity, and wellbeing of our communities in all aspects of our work.
