DACA & Related Issues

February 14, 2018

The community is invited to attend a special event, "DACA & Related Issues" on Friday, February 23, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Folsom Lake College (10 College Parkway, off E. Bidwell St., in Folsom) in the Large Lecture Hall (Buckeye Hall FL3-173).

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was introduced in 2012 and shields those who were brought into the United States as children from deportation and allows them to acquire work permits. Due to recent changes in legislation aimed at rescinding the program, these participants known as "Dreamers" are uncertain about their future. This event will cover the current issues facing the fluctuating U.S. immigration policy as well as provide resources for those affected.

Featured speakers include:

  • César Moreno Pérez, Associate Director of Human Rights & Community Relations, American Federation of Teachers (AFT)
  • Dr. Rita Cepeda, Emeritus Chancellor of San José/Evergreen Community College District and former Advisor for the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence
  • Mario Galván, Zapatista Solidarity Coalition of Sacramento
  • Jim González, Political Strategist and former San Francisco Supervisor
  • Jonathan Jayes-Green, Co-Founder of the UndocuBlack Network
  • Dr. Rhonda Ríos Kravitz, Emeritus Dean of Learning Resources, Sacramento City College

"We hope you join us for this candid, widely informational conversation regarding these issues that are placing the future of our students, the nation, and the American dream at risk. We will present both the acute realities and provide inspiration towards a realistic solution," said Folsom Lake College professor and the event's coordinator, Dr. Elvia Macías-Pérez.

Admission is free. Guest parking is free in Lot B. View campus map For more information on this event, contact Dr. Elvia Macías-Pérez at: maciase@flc.losrios.edu or (916) 608-6544.
