We are the first Pan-Asian undocumented immigrant led group of its kind who dares to raise the voices of API undocumented immigrants in spite of cultural stigma.
ASPIRE’s work is grounded in our personal experience of being undocumented and Asian Pacific Islander. We are part of the 1.5 million undocumented Asian Pacific Islanders living in the United States who brings visibility to our unique issues through sharing our personal stories—stories that have gone invisible for too long.
We continue to challenge the hegemonic view of immigration and fight to end inhumane deportations that separate families through legislative visits, community education, and non-violent direct actions. Moreover, ASPIRE supports and empowers young people to advocate for themselves, their families, and their community. Our goal is to help create a society in which immigrants and people of color can live with dignity and respect.
