Providing meaningful assistance to those in the immigrant community most affected by the uncertainty fueled by policy changes in Washington, D.C., will be the topic of the next Yotie Talks program, set for noon Tuesday, May 23, at Cal State San Bernardino.
“Allies Not Saviors: A Training to Support Undocumented Students,” will be held in the John M. Pfau Library, room PL-4005.
Yotie Talks, which follows a format similar to the TED Talks, is organized by the University Diversity Committee at CSUSB, and is free and open to the public. Parking at CSUSB is $6.
In the current political climate, the immigrant community — especially the undocumented — have been targeted, which in turn has created fear, mistrust, and anxiety among these vulnerable groups nationwide.
Many who support immigrant communities have been wondering how they can offer meaningful assistance.
In this talk, Maria Barragan, of the university’s DREAMers Resource Center, along with Yadira Ortiz, an Educational Opportunity Program admissions counselor, will discuss current policies that affect undocumented CSUSB students and their families, with a focus on how to be an ally who makes students feel safe, valued, and affirmed.
