Calling all undocuqueer folx who would like a safe space to mingle and share, come join us Friday evenings!
The annual Immigrant Youth Empowerment Conference (IYECon) is an all day conference which aims to provide resources and tools to all youths and their families, regardless of their immigration status to be empowered and organize within their communities.
Come paint, have snacks, sip warm drinks, and hang out on a relaxing Sunday afternoon at our office! We'll teach you to complete your painting step-by-step. You're also welcome to paint freestyle. Beginners and all ages are welcome. We will provide all the materials.
$10-$40 suggested donation, pay-what-you-can. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. If sharing your supplies and project with a child/guest, no need to reserve an additional seat. All proceeds benefit NYSYLC's immigrant justice work.
This event can hold 30 people max. RSVP today!
In collaboration with CUNY School of Law we invite you to a CUNY-wide information session. This session will be geared towards preparing and defending those who are concerned about losing immigration status and how to potentially navigate life without documents. We welcome other community members and allies to join us.
It is the NYSYLC's pleasure to present our first ever UndocuQueer Summit! Queer immigrants have faced attacks on their identities and well-beings from various ends and not often are they given the space and opportunity to heal. We want to invite you to our place of healing for an exciting afternoon of introspection and community building!

In partnership with Atlas:DIY, The Healing Center, Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) and BYP 100 we're coming together for a series of events to shed light on the impact of sexual violence, how it intersects with our communities and all the ways YOU can join to end it.
Lets be real, we were fighting for justice in 2016 and will do the same in 2017. Join us at our office to plan for the year and strategize on ways to continue fighting for change and resisting oppression! This event is open to all even if you haven't been involved before. Bring a friend!
Now more than ever, immigrant youth need a space to connect with each other, share stories, find resources, heal, and build collective power. Educators need an opportunity to meaningfully support their students and to connect with each other and share questions and best practices. Join the New York State Youth Leadership Council and Teach Dream for this one day training.
