Our Story

Momentum Alliance emerged from the “Papers” Youth Crew, youth who helped produce and distribute the documentary film, “Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth,” which screened in all 50 states and the U.S. Capitol, and was broadcast on public television nationwide.

We are undocumented, immigrant, indigenous, LGBTQ, gang-affected, HIV- and STI-positive and low-income youth, youth of color, youth with disabilities, youth who are transitioning from foster care, homelessness and incarceration, youth who have experienced war, domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse, teen parents and allies. We were raised in seven religious traditions.
