4b7486f417a9aa4ec7eaa240f46022144c07362aAmerica’s Voice Education Fund, United We Dream, the National Immigration Law Center, and the Domestic Workers Alliance have launched a project, #DignityDays, to highlight the work and efforts from activists and leaders across the immigrant community.

On the second panel of #DignityDays, Susana Muñoz (Assistant Professor at Colorado State University), Ignacia Rodriguez (NILC Equal Justice Works Fellow), Denisse Rojas (Co-founder and Director of Pre-Health Dreamers), Cesar Vargas (Co-founder of DRM Action Coalition), and myself (Doctoral student and Ford Foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellow at Harvard University) gathered to share our journeys and key advice about pursuing a higher education as an undocumented student.
