The purpose of this qualitative study is to determine what factors contribute to former and current college students' decisions to participate in offline and online activism for undocumented immigrant youth rights. In exploring online activism in particular, new social media includes, but is not limited to, online blogs, social networking sites (e.g. Twitter, Myspace, Facebook), and e-mail. To do this, I have interviewed 11 former and current college students who are advocating for undocumented immigrant youth rights offline and online all across the United States. This group of activists is composed of both documented and undocumented immigrants who have shared with me their immigration experiences, educational successes and goals, social identity, and experiences in activism. Undocumented activists in this study have all shared their lack of legal status either anonymously or in public at varying events. Furthermore, activism for some of the students began offline and for others it began online. For students whose activism began offline, they found the online community to be a place where they could expand their network, share information, and help organize. Students whose activism began online indicated that they gained a sense of empowerment once they went offline.
