Mission: The mission of ASPIRE is to empower undocumented Asian Pacific Islander youth and young adults to educate, advocate, organize, and mobilize for the rights of immigrant families. Our vision is to build an inclusive and socially just society.
What we do:
MOBILIZE! ASPIRE has regular bi-weekly meetings that provide a safe space for AB 540 API youth to talk about their issues and train youth to become advocates for immigrant rights.
EDUCATE! ASPIRE has provided numerous Know Your Rights presentations on AB540, the CA Dream Act, and the Federal Dream Act for local colleges, high schools, and Community Based Organizations.
ADVOCATE! ASPIRE youth have actively lobbied and presented their testimonies to urge elected officials, to support policies that broaden the rights and maximize the opportunities of undocumented youth at the city, state, and national level.

By collectively challenging unfair deportations and unjust policy through organizing, art, legislation, and action, we aim to reverse criminalization, build migrant power, and create immigration policies based on principles of inclusion.
