TODAY – Platicas Con Cafecito: Undocumented Testimonios

submitted by

Join Latinx Student Services this week in our first dialogue series on Tuesday, September 26th and Thursday, September 28th, from 2:30pm to 3:45 p.m. at the Augsburg Room.

By participating in our “platicas con cafecito”, we will strive to co-create a courageous and an intentional space to share our stories, deepen healthy, inclusive, and strong relationships at the speed of trust.

On Tuesday, we will be sharing personal experiences and stories about navigating higher education as undocumented, immigrant, and mix-status students, friends, family members, and/or allies. We have a diverse immigrant community, so regardless, of your legal status, ethnicity, or classes, you encouraged and welcomed to join us in our circle.

Please note that in our efforts to build trust during our time together, you are asked to attend for the entirety of the dialogue, as leaving early or arriving late may create a distraction from our time together.

This dialogue will be co-facilitated by Erika Hernandez, Latinx Student Services Program Manager, and Luis Solis-Reyes, CWC Counselor.

On Thursday, September 28th, we will be moving from listening and sharing our personal stories, to collectively creating solutions about the issues and barriers faced by undocumented and immigrant students in higher education. Allies and friends are encouraged to participate in this session.
