Atlas: DIY is so excited to present the new, interactive component of our website, MyAtlas! MyAtlas lets people from all over the country interact with Atlas: DIY in a fun, educational and exciting way. Through MyAtlas, you can create an account in a matter of seconds, and immediately begin interacting with Atlas: DIY to earn points, and eventually redeem rewards.
What do I need to create a MyAtlas account?
It’s as easy as just having a Facebook or Twitter account. You can link either of these accounts to our website when you create your account, and MyAtlas will do the rest!
What kind of activities can I do on MyAtlas?
Atlas: DIY is constantly updating our website with new information about immigration reform in the US, as well as the events and programming we’re putting on. You can comment on a video or article we put up to earn points, or attend one of our events and use the code on the event calendar page to redeem your points. The ways to earn points are limitless, and we hope you earn as many as you can!
What rewards can I redeem?
Just like the activities, the rewards you can redeem are constantly being updated, and if you have an idea for a reward you’d like, let us know! Rewards range from shoutouts on Twitter or Facebook, to having your immigration question answered by Lauren Burke, our Executive Director, in one of her Migration Monday videos. One of our most popular rewards is unlocking the link to a DACA renewal cover letter! The biggest reward is earning a Skype session with Lauren or another member of our legal team, during which we’ll help you on your legal case, no matter where you live in the country. How awesome is that?!
How has MyAtlas helped?
One of the most amazing things about MyAtlas is that just by participating, you’re helping Atlas grow! We love being able to tell our funders that we have an active and vibrant online community, and in return our funders continually help Atlas provide free legal services and programming to our members. Our YouTube videos, which are one of our most popular forms of online content, have reached over 150,000 views, and have helped young people across the country empower themselves.
