Youth Organizers United

Advocating on behalf of undocumented citizens in Mississippi, Sara used her Blueprint to begin an organization called Youth Organizers United that strives to achieve equal access to higher education, humane laws, cultural awareness and protection of human rights for all people. Y.O.U. focuses on community development and grassroots organizing as it works to promote policy changes and justice in the local, state and national arenas (with initial concentration on immigration reform in Mississippi). Sara believes that this work is fundamental to the progressive movement because it can help end the cycle of poverty and oppression faced by many immigrant families
