Beyond Prop 300: Challenging, reinventing and building pathways for and by Undocumented youth in AZ

Panelists, with diverse experiences, will share about the paths they took toward higher education and/or career, how they have been supported (or not) along the way, and what resources they used and created to get to where they are today. Through storytelling, participants will be allowed the opportunity to learn how Undocumented students navigate, challenge, and overcome barriers upheld by state and federal laws, institutional polices, and individual prejudice. Facilitators will guide participants through key ideas from each story and together identify tangible action items that can be brought back to work spaces.
