“For families and their Education”


FIEL thanks you for taking an interest in our work!

Immigrant Families and Students in the Struggle is an immigrant led organization who advocates for just laws for immigrant youth, their families, access to higher education for all people regardless of immigration status and access to jsutice for the community.

We at FIEL believe in the American DREAM. We believe that it is in this fundamental principle in which we can build upon and better the lives of all people in the United States. We believe in social justice and in civic participation to make things happen.

Further we believe that all students are entitled to an education regardless of their immigration status. It is for this reason that we push for laws that benefit students and make education accessible to all.

We also believe in the fight for Comprehensive immigration reform and the DREAM Act and we will continue to push for both of these initiatives.
