Immigrant Allyship training, 3/16, 3-5pm


Learn about how to be inclusive and supportive of immigrants in our campus community and beyond, including undocumented individuals, those with tenuous immigration status, those from mixed-status families, and international students. This program offers a unique line-up of panelists who bring diverse perspectives to this topic: Amadou Fofana (Residence Hall Director, Court-Kay-Bauer); Christian Gonzalez (Associate Director for Student Empowerment and Undocumented/DACA Student Support); and Jaclyn Kelley-Widmer (Associate Clinical Professor, law) with law students Ethan Taveras and Yam Schaal. Presenters will explain legal, social, personal, and economic challenges faced by these immigrant communities and lead a robust discussion. In this interactive session, participants will discuss concrete ways to be an ally to the immigrant community and practice putting those skills to use.

This event is co-sponsored by the Migrations Initiative and Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga.
