MJC offers Dreamers and DACA panel discussion

MJC offers Dreamers and DACA panel discussion

The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to a Dreamers and DACA panel discussion on Thursday, February 15, at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on MJC’s East Campus, 435 College Avenue. The event is part of the CEP Fall Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.

Recent years have seen efforts at immigration reform, such as the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, & Education for Alien Minors) and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). However, the DREAM Act failed to pass in Congress, and DACA has been rescinded, though that rescission has been met with legal challenges in courts. So where are we now, and what support is available to today’s undocumented students?

This event’s panelists include Ariana Gonzalez, MJC counselor and UndocuAlly coordinator, and Solange Altman, attorney coordinator of immigration services at El Concilio. MEChA, Congregations Building Community, Catholic Charities and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center will also be on hand to share information about their organizations and services.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendance at CEP events is limited, so arriving a little early is encouraged.
