These are some of the annual projects we've developed, lead and volunteered for over the years.

Coming Out Of The Shadows - A Day Of Action! 

Building community and bridges of hope! 

It is a daylong event where dozens of undocumented students, immigrant supporters, and members of the community come together to distribute educational materials to help immigrant communities and inform people of their rights regardless of their immigration status. In the afternoon, we hear from many undocumented students whose stories are changing the discourse of immigration at state and national level. We share our stories to show our resilience and empower our fellow undocumented students, supporters and allies to preserve in the face of hurdles.

Summer Information Sessions 

Learn how to make the best of the resources available to you! 

We developed informational workshops for undocumented students to learn more about the resources available to them in the City University of New York. It is a perfect time for students entering the CUNY system to meet undocumented students from their respective campuses and across CUNY.

Legislative And Story - Telling Trainings 

Your story is a powerful tool to make change happen! 

Students learn about the state legislative process and of policies affecting them directly. They use this knowledge as an opportunity to explore new approaches and creative styles to share their stories.  

Daily News/CUNY Citizenship NOW! Call-In 

Giving Back to our community! 

This annual volunteer effort was added to the calendar of CUNY DREAMers in 2015 because they understood by firsthand experience that immigrants felt more confident when speaking to people who faced or continue to face the same struggles. They attend professional trainings and are prepared to help thousands of immigrants during the free five-day helpline with questions about how to become an American citizen, or need legal options to stay in the country.

We are the first CUNY-wide student-led organization regardless of legal status that represents the needs and aspirations of undocumented students in The City University of New York. CUNY DREAMers’s mission is to build a network of support to help with the college retention and successful graduation of undocumented students.
