Join Norma Ramirez and Sharet Garcia for a discussion on mental health, the importance of self-care, and resources available to undocumented immigrants. This is an event organized by the Salt Lake Community College Dream Center.
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.
Join us in conversation with Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, author of “The Undocumented Americans.” At a time when the fabled American Dream is turning into a nightmare for so many, Ms. Cornejo Villavicencio’s searing debut is an incandescent and fearless indictment against the dark systemic forces of racism and immigration injustice. This event is co-sponsored by: Cornell Law School, Cornell Dean of Students Office, Dream Team, the Department of Romance Studies, and AltBreaks.
