CrossingBarriers (CB) is a grassroots organization led by immigrant youth, student leaders, parents and community members. CrossingBarriers develops leaders that advocate, organize and bring about systemic change to improve schools and other related systems that continue to fail immigrant families. CB empowers participants and the community they represent to take on leadership and advocacy roles by articulating needs, influencing public policies, holding institutions accountable and training the next generation of immigrant leaders.
