Upcoming UndocuAlly Trainings

UndocuAlly Training: Being an Ally to Undocumented Students

As part of Undocumented Student Week of Action 2023

Monday, October 16, 2:00pm - 3:00pm, Diablo Room

Undocumented students are often reluctant to share their immigration status with college staff, faculty, and administrators in fear of deportation and discrimination. As a result, most undocumented students are unaware of the programs and services that may assist them or receive incorrect information about resources that are available to them. Part of the challenge is that immigration policies are complex in nature and consistent training is necessary in order to stay abreast of all the legal and political implications in assisting undocumented students. Since 2015, the DREAMERs Alliance began developing the UndocuAlly Training and Ally Sticker Program. We invite you to join us for this interactive discussion and to learn about the history, legislation, challenges, and current/future realities of this student community. This workshop will provide updates on DACA and resources available in the current environment.
