One Horizon Institute Our guiding image—our “one horizon”—is a society that works for everybody in it. We think of society as a vast commonwealth and each of us as equal participants in its risks and rewards. Working together as individuals and communities we can achieve a fair and sustainable human future. www.onehorizon.org
National Immigrant Youth Alliance We believe that only a grassroots movement led by undocumented immigrant youth can properly address the inequities and seemingly insurmountable obstacles facing our communities. Through grassroots organizing, advocacy and direct collective action we aim to develop a sustainable movement for justice and equality led by those most affected and supported by committed, conscientious allies. Our core values are to Empower, Educate and Escalate. www.theniya.org
