Immigration/Community Resources

The faculty of the Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies Department continue to seek opportunities to engage, meet students in groups and organize student communities while supporting civic participation and engagement during this post-election time. The primary focus is support in the areas of immigration, education and coalition building.  We are organizing several panels and meetings with immigration experts in collaboration with The Dreamers Resource Center where our students will be able to engage directly in dialogue and information sessions. Upmost is education on DACA and the Calfornia Dream Act.  Please, use the links of Instagram and Facebook on the department website for current information and updates.
