OUR CURRENT CAMPAIGNS
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
In January 2020, news broke that over 130 reports from Boston Public Schools ended up with Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE). We are working with the Student Immigrant Movement to ensure that Boston Public Schools students are protected from information-sharing that jeopardizes their futures. Sign the petition and learn more about upcoming actions here.
DONATE TO THE UNAFRAID SCHOLARSHIP
The Unafraid Scholarship was founded by the BTU’s Unafraid Educators in order to provide financial support for students who are not eligible to receive financial aid from the federal government due to their immigration status. It is a one-time grant made payable to the college. Students are able to reapply for the scholarship every year. The amount of the scholarship will depend on the particular financial need of the student, the number of qualified applicants, and the funds raised in a given year.
TAKE PART IN THE WEEK OF ACTION
Schools across Boston and beyond participate in the Unafraid Educators Week of Action every year. Given the current COVID-19 crisis, our organizing this year will be virtual.
This year’s Week of Action goals are:
- Move money and resources to supported undocumented families and others in need during the current COVID-19 crisis
- Take action to make schools safe from ICE through our #noICEinBPS campaign
- Celebrate immigrant pride and uplift student stories
