In honor of International Women’s Day, the UndocuBlack Network paid homage to the scores of immigrant women who have helped propel the nation and the world forward. Throughout this Women’s History Month, the network celebrates and reflects on the accomplishments of immigrant women who have fought for safety and security for all women. 

“Undocumented Black women have been active agents in challenging injustices. The UndocuBlack Network celebrates the strength, commitment, diversity, hard work, essentiality and perseverance of undocumented Black women within our membership, our leadership, and outside of UndocuBlack, who, despite lack of social and economic support and relief from the government, stood their grounds and fought against the additional barrier of the pandemic and their immigration status,” the statement from the organization reads/

“Undocumented Black women have been at the forefront of pushing for change in this country. Be it the civil rights, workers’ rights, women’s right or immigrant justice, immigrant Black women have worked hard to create a society where all belong and all can thrive. Undocumented women understand that immigration status should not determine a person’s ability to live healthy and whole lives.”

As a Black, undocumented, women-led organization, UndocuBlack has continuously stood alongside Haitians, Cameroonians, Mauritanians and all marginalized women, who are exploited and abused, in their fight for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and a pathway to citizenship via green cards.
