Immigration is a national hot topic. During this webinar members of the Cal State East Bay community will share the responsive programs they created to engage the immigrant community and develop positive relationships across difference.
In 2014, when a surge in the number of unaccompanied minors immigrating to the United States from Central America created a need for more support of immigrant youth, CSUEB created an Immigrant Community Engagement course. During this course our students probe the dynamics of immigrant experiences and serve at immigrant supporting agencies.
In 2016-17 after a surge in federal immigration enforcement and arrests, 200+ campus employees and students have been trained to serve as allies to support the unique needs of undocumented students on campus. Our campus also hosted a CSU systemwide Undocumented Student Resource Summit.
In 2017-18 our campus and community common read is In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero, which tells the story of the author’s life after her parents were detained and deported while she was at school. Campus and community members will engage in structured conversations about immigration and engage in activities that will result in the update of the City of Hayward’s Anti-Discrimination Action Plan (ADAP).
Hosted by California Campus Compact, Campus Compact of the Mountain West and Utah Campus Compact
