SWER was founded in 2007 by a group of undocumented students struggling against out of state tuition rates and the lack of equal opportunity for their families.
Now, SWER has over 12 Chapters throughout the State and is affiliated with organizations like United We Dream, the Florida Immigrant Coalition and the Florida Immigrant Youth Network.
