Immigrant Justice

Since 2006 YWU has built in an immigrants rights component to the center. By being one of the lead organizations in planning May Day annually with other community organizations and labor unions, YWU ensures that immigrant rights issues continue to be a solid foundation of our work, since many of our members are undocumented monolingual Spanish speakers. We work locally on pro-immigrant policies to better serve our communities and advocate annually at the state level for pro-immigrant legislation which helps us developed leadership with members and give voice to our immigrant community. YWU supports a platform to end all deportations, stand against legislation that criminalizes our immigrant communities and push for just immigration reform.
