Help PLU continue to work with and for undocumented students!

This crowdfunding project is no longer active, but if you would still like to support PLU4US, you can do so here.

Across the United States in May, students graduating from high school holding a college admissions letter can look ahead to continuing their education in the fall. College seniors and graduate students will each head to Commencement and celebrate the successful completion of their education. At PLU, we are committed to ensuring that May is both a month of hope and anticipation for undocumented high school seniors and a month of celebration and success for college seniors and graduate students.  

Today, we reach out to ask for your help raising $8000 to continue working with and for undocumented students and providing them with the stability and materials they need to reach their goals!

University (A Collective Poem)

By: The Gold Group (PLU’s community of undocumented students)

As a first generation student, I arrived to college with fear, excitement, grit, and motivation to break this cycle of not continuing our education after high school to work hard labor jobs. 

It is easy to get caught up on the things of yesterday and worry about the uncertainty of tomorrow. The responsibility of being the “role model” has always weighed down on me.

But now as I see myself fulfilling my dreams I know that all the late nights, tears, and stress are worth it. I want to cherish the time in which I am living right now with love, freedom and perseverance until the end.  

My resilience was gifted to me by my parents hard work as immigrants in this country, and that resiliency has only grown. Not only does it protect me, but it gives my little sisters hope, and it fuels my  determination to succeed. 

In spite of obstacles,  grit and perseverance vitalize my desire to become a highly-motivated, ethical, working professional.  I learned to take adversity and convert it into rocket fuel. 2.1
