Our Story

Our work began as Dreamers of UW-Madison, a registered student organization with the goal of advocating for both undocumented and DACAmented students pursuing higher education in Dane County.​ In 2020, our efforts expanded statewide in recognition of our work as a necessity across Wisconsin's entire undocumented community. Dreamers of Wisconsin is now the first education-focused nonprofit organization serving the undocumented community in the state of Wisconsin.

Today, Dreamers of UW-Madison is a student-led chapter within the Dreamers of Wisconsin non-profit organization.
