United We Dream

United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led community in the country. They create welcoming spaces for young people- regardless of immigration status – to support, engage, and empower them to make their voice heard and win.

Why We Invested

The Rights and Dignity (RAD) Working Group comprises representatives from The Omidyar Group, Democracy Fund, Humanity United and Luminate, and is committed to addressing conditions and systems of hate through a values-based, collaborative approach. Democracy Fund convenes and supports the working group.

The RAD Working Group recognizes that those working to preserve the rights and dignity of vulnerable communities in the United States are facing direct and vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, burnout, and a range of physical and emotional needs. The purpose of this grant is to support wellness and healing for frontline staff at United We Dream, and to learn about strategies, resources, and needs in the field.
