The UndocuBlack Network has local chapters in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC. These chapters are building on our local convenings that provide safe spaces for attendees to develop kinship amongst other Black undocumented immigrants in their community. If you're interested in starting or supporting a chapter, please email email@example.com
We established a Mental Wellness Initiative to underscore and address the trauma that our community experiences. During this time of political crisis, increased targeting, criminalization and deportation of our community members, the UndocuBlack Network is prioritizing our community’s survival and resistance through mental wellness. We believe our community’s holistic survival is a matter of urgency. The initiative therefore focuses on expanding the dialogue on the increased urgency of mental wellness within our affected communities, creating and facilitating supports, and ensuring adequate access to mental health services. The first roll-out from the initiative is our guide, The UndocuBlack Guide for Mental Wellness Specialists. This guide is meant to highlight experiences of Black undocumented community members in mental healthcare, and offers some insight and direction to mental health providers on considerations while engaging their Black undocumented community members as clients
UBN is working with several organizational partners to create resources or adjust current ones, so that they are accessible to the Black undocumented community. Our soon-to-be launched resource guide will include low cost and inclusive legal, health, housing and educational resources. If you are aware of and/or connected to any low cost or free resources that can be utilized by anyone regardless of immigration status or race, please complete this form with the necessary information.
If you or your organization would like to provide support to the UndocuBlack Network on any of the above items or on other things, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
