IUYA is a youth-led organization that seeks to empower young immigrants to achieve higher education and engage in the community to demand more just and humane policies that affect undocumented families.

 

The Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance, Inc. (IUYA), is committed to empowering undocumented youth to achieve high levels of education, influence public policy, and overall improve the quality of life of undocumented communities in the state of Indiana. We believe we can build power by organizing at the local and statewide levels, all while providing resources to support undocumented students and their families, and creating meaningful alliances with other advocacy organizations. Our network is made up of undocumented and documented youth, allies, and affiliate organizations.

 

We are dedicated to empowering and supporting undocumented youth to achieve a full membership in this society. To do so, we work to gather economic resources, develop partnerships and identify valuable information to share with undocumented individuals and their families. Along with serving our community, IUYA also works to influence the design of public policy at the local, state and federal levels to radically improve the status of undocumented individuals across the United States and in the State of Indiana.
