HEFAS of De Anza Community College is hosting the second annual summit for students, parents, educators, community members, and allies to raise awareness about the issues faced by the undocumented community. In the summit, participants will learn how undocumented students find resources and support to go through college, understand the complex intersections of immigration status and other identities, get educated about current immigration policies, and how to support undocumented students as an ally.
Here’s more information about this year’s summit:
What: 2nd Annual Dream Summit
Where: De Anza College (Cupertino, CA)
Date: May 20, 2016
Time: 8:30am – 2:30pm
Food and drink will be provided
Keynote speaker: Julio Salgado. He is the co-founder of DreamersAdrift. His status as an undocumented, queer activist has fueled the contents of his visual art, which depict key individuals and moments of the DREAM Act movement. Undocumented students and allies across the country have used Salgado’s artwork to call attention to the youth-led movement. His work has been praised by OC Weekly’s Gustavo Arellano, KPCC-FM 89.3’s Multi-American blog and the influential journal ColorLines. In July 2012, Salgado and other undocumented activists joined Jose A. Vargas on the cover of Time Magazine. Salgado graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a degree in journalism.
