Introducing UWD’s New Look

Inspired and developed by our members.

Our new logo was hand-crafted and crowd-sourced over the course of a year by immigrant youth across the country. It was developed to celebrate our diversity, show the passion and energy of our members, honor our herstory, all the while focusing on our member’s vision and the fight that still lies ahead.

Guiding Principles


Our Guiding Values Principles are what we believe and how we operate as an organization to make sure our work is rooted in a fight for justice.

What Does UWD Mean To You?

Meet some of the UWDers that helped shaped our new look and our vision for 2020!

Things you might be wondering


UWD members have been hard at work for the past year and today we are excited to unveil a new look as well as our vision for 2020.
While UWD has grown significantly and we’ve been able to win huge victories, we noticed that our look still reflected our original mission to achieve higher education. While education equity is something we believe in and will continue to fight for, it has become about much more than just a college degree.

This kicked off an exciting journey that started in January 2015 and was led by UWD members including affiliate leaders, online members, national leadership committee, staff, and board where we would dream up our new logo, guiding principles, and our vision for 2020.

Though our look has changed, our commitment to the needs of our members and communities has not.

Our members will continue doing the work we have always done in order to ensure dignity, justice, and humanity for all immigrants.

This includes being a leading and trusted source of information on DACA & DAPA, scholarships for higher education, and stories.

Together we fight for education, economic, racial, gender, reproductive and environmental justice and fight to build power within our communities. We fight for justice and dignity for all.

Our new look simply serves as a reminder to the world of who UWD is and grounds us on the victories that we want for our communities.

UWD members are hard at work getting final input and feedback from other members to develop a final draft of our principles.

They will be unveiling the exciting news at UWD’s National Congress–the largest immigrant youth gathering in the country–on June 10th!

The guiding principles were developed in a year-long process led by UWD members from across the country.

The journey kick-started in January 2015 and was led by UWD members including affiliate leaders, online members, national leadership committee, staff, and board where we would dream up our new logo, guiding principles, and our vision for 2020.

In the end, every active UWD affiliate got a chance to provide their input, ideas, and dreams.

The journey was challenging and a massive undertaking but it was one that UWD members voiced they wanted to take. Overall it took over one year of most, if not all, UWD members leaders convening, gathering information, speaking to their communities, envisioning, setting goals, having countless hours of conversation and collectively painting the change that we wanted to see in the next five years for our members, our families, and our communities.

Our new logo was hand-crafted and crowd-sourced over the course of a year by immigrant youth. It was crafted to celebrate our diversity, show the passion and energy of our members, honor our herstory, all the while focusing on our member’s vision and the fight that still lies ahead.

The new logo, although very different, retains some familiar aspects from our previous logo including the vibrant UWD Orange and the bold UWD Blue.

Yes. Although UWD organizes people of all ages, we believe that at the core of our organizing model, youth are at the center of making decisions and guide our work.
The new logo will go into effect starting on June 1st. We will be changing the logo on all of our online platforms including our website and social media accounts.

Our guiding principles will be unveiled by UWD members helped give shape to them on June 11th at the largest immigrant youth gathering in the country–UWD National Congress.
