Supporting Undocumented Students 

During the week of October 15-19, 2018, California Community Colleges will engage in a week of advocacy and activities to support and build awareness about undocumented students throughout the state. Undocumented Student Week of Action is a student-led campaign to advocate for a permanent solution to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that includes a pathway to citizenship, and to also provide support and resources to ALL undocumented students. Throughout the week, students are encouraged to meet with their Congressional representatives, sign postcards supporting DACA, and register their fellow students to vote.  Colleges and students are encouraged to organize and participate in activities that support our undocumented student population.   

For a suggested list of activities for students, faculty, staff and college leaders to do on campus to engage their peers to advocate for and support undocumented students click on the link below.
