DREAM Workshop Preview

By Olivia Olander, News Editor

Two immigration information workshops for undocumented students, students with undocumented parents, and students who fall under the DREAM act (which protects undocumented young people) will be held on campus Nov. 30 and Dec. 7 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:40 p.m.

The AVID-sponsored workshops, which will take place in room 35, will feature attorney Amie Scully, who specializes in immigration law, according to teacher Ruth Magnuson.

The seminars will include confidential guidance, and snacks will be provided, according to the workshop flyer.

“[The attorney] is going to talk… about what to expect from the recent president-elect [Donald] Trump, just to inform people of their rights. I’m not here to advocate for a certain thing, but I certainly don’t want people to feel scared,” Magnuson said. She added that Scully has been on campus before to assist students with DREAM applications.

Magnuson added that students who feel concerned about immigration in the wake of Trump’s election should “be informed, […] research next steps, get involved, and also find organizations that could help them and get resources.”
