Today launches the NY youth leadership council’s Week of Action to pass the NY DREAM Act, and UHAB organizers want to give a shout out to the amazing work that undocumented youth are doing, and hope to support them in their efforts to pass a NY State Dream Act.
While we at UHAB do not work directly on immigration issues, many of the tenants we work with are recent immigrants. As organizers, we work to improve the lives of tenants, regardless of immigration status. We aspire to empower tenants to have a voice in their building and their community, and consider safe, affordable housing, just like education, a human right.
