Join the undocumented youth-led organization NYSYLC’s first ever Undocu Queer Summit on July 29th in New York City!
“If you’re a member of the LGBTQ and undocumented immigrant communities this will be a space created solely to address your experiences. The event will comprise of various group building exercises that address mental health, communication, and organizing. Come with your anger, fear, and doubt and we will provide love and support as a community. Let July 29 be the day you stop finding yourself alone or hopeless. The event will be hosted in our New York City headquarters at 168 Canal Street. Allies, please understand that undocuqueer spaces are not very common and it is our priority to have the resources prepared for this specific community.”
“These identities come with heavy subjects and emotional weight and such is why we ask that each participant fill out a registration form that allows them to pinpoint important topics to their identities.”
