CT Students for a Dream
Connecticut Students for a Dream (C4D) is a statewide, youth-led network fighting for the rights of undocumented youth and their families. We are a fiscally sponsored project of United We Dream, a multi-ethnic immigrant youth-led organization committed to achieving dignity and humanity for all immigrants and people of color in the U.S by empowering, organizing, and developing our members’ leadership. We are building a sustainable grassroots movement by organizing and advocating at the local, regional, and national levels from a racial justice and intersectional analysis while also providing transformative leadership development, tools and resources to support our leaders.
Whether we’re organizing in the streets, clearing pathways to education and fighting for education equity, stopping deportations, running advocacy campaigns to win legislation, or creating alliances across social movements, C4D puts undocumented immigrant youth in the driver’s seat. C4D is a fast paced, dynamic organization which has become a leading voice in social change in Connecticut.
We are driven by the priorities and needs of our members and community, have trained hundreds of individuals, and have worked with and supported countless local youth organizing groups and campaigns. Our grassroots-driven approach has a proven record of accomplishment and we’re looking for talented folks to join our team!
