About the Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance 

The Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance (IUYA) is a youth-led organization that seeks to empower immigrants to achieve higher education and engage in the community to demand more just and humane policies that affect undocumented families. 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.
