SBVC Supports its DREAMer Students with Undocumented Student Week of Action

SBVC hosted numerous events and activities to commemorate Undocumented Student Week of Action, a campaign to advocate for a permanent solution to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that includes a pathway to citizenship, support and resources to all undocumented students.

The week kicked off with a keynote lecture from artist
and activist Favianna Rodriguez, who spoke about how to support migrant communities and the importance of the butterfly symbolizing DACA students and their
families. A mini-transfer fair was held for undocumented students, featuring SBVC Dreamer Alumni from the CSU/UC systems. Hadley Bajramovic hosted a “Know Your Rights” presentation, covering numerous immigration topics and answering student questions. Students also attended various workshops and panel discussions, including a webinar on how to pay for college and a workshop on self-care for DREAMers.
