United Stateless is a national organization led by stateless people whose mission is to build and inspire community among those affected by statelessness, and to advocate for their human rights.
 
We do this by:
  • Connecting, encouraging, and empowering a community of stateless people in the U.S.
     
  • Raising awareness of statelessness issues in the United States as well as globally, and educating the community/public/stakeholders about the issue of statelessness.
     
  • Advocating for the human rights of stateless people and changes to domestic laws to introduce a path to citizenship for the stateless in the U.S.

Counting the
Stateless in the US:

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) are conducting a research study about statelessness in the United States. The purpose of this study is to estimate the number of stateless people in the US, develop profiles of different stateless populations, and understand their experiences and legal situations. Researchers at Syracuse University are assisting with the collection and analysis of research data.
