- Notifica App: A Hub for News, Alerts, Assistance & Action, by United We Dream
United We Dream launched the Notifica App back in 2018 as a deportation defense tool. They have updated it in response to the current period, because the Biden administration is still deporting people and Immigrant communities need to be prepared in case they face immigration agents. In response, UWD launched the next generation of the Notifica App (you can download the app by texting NOTIFICA to 877-877 to get a link to your phone or visit the website here)
Now, Notifica is not only a deportation defense app to help our immigrant community protect themselves against deportation agents. Notifica is now your hub for the latest immigration news and alerts, DACA updates and assistance, mental health resources, and a directory of community groups.
- Guide for Undocumented High School & College Students by Informed Immigrant
Informed Immigrant is launching a new Guide for Undocumented High School and College Students in English and in Spanish. I know that many activists and educators have at one point had a student looking for guidance confide in them that they are undocumented. Despite being driven to support that student, it can be challenging to come up with answers to every question. The goal of this guide is to equip undocumented youth and educators with resources and knowledge to help students make informed decisions about their future and feel supported in their next steps after high school, including entering the workforce and applying to college.
