UPLIFT is an Undocumented Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Youth-led organization, based in Los Angeles. We provide a safe and progressive space for API immigrant youth. We raise awareness of various immigrant and civil right issues in the API community, advocate for equality, and uplift the narratives of API undocumented youth in the immigrant rights movement. We build lasting relationships to empower and strengthen the next generation of leaders.


Join UPLIFT-Los Angeles for the first installment of our film series, Lights, Camera, Action. We will be screening two short films about the experiences of Southeast Asian immigrants who have undergone deportation: "Return to Sender" and "NBC Asian-America Presents: Deported."

Followed by Q&A with Los Angeles-based organizers and directly impacted individuals.
