Black immigrants are 3 times more likely to be detained or deported on an ALLEGED criminal offense. According to the ACLU, Black people make up 7% of the non-citizen population in the United States, but make up 20% of immigrants fighting deportation. First People’s Undocu(Black)Ally student trainings will practice allyship through knowledge, awareness, reflection, and action. Undocu(Black) Ally training is an educational intervention designed to increase awareness, competency, and self-efficacy for students and community members. These trainings are critical because any immigration policies put into action disproportionality disrupt the lives of black people. Living in a society rooted in the oppression and incarceration of black life, it’s important that students have access to education on the interwoven systemic policies keeping black people from existing within the U.S. borders.

The Undocu(Black)Ally training will support attendees in:

  • Understanding state and federal immigration policies impacting students
  • Understanding what it means to be an Ally
  • How to use a Critical Race Lens when advocating for immigrant rights
  • Resources students can utilize to further their education
