Workshop: Family Safety Guide for Immigrants*

Student leaders from RISE (Rising Immigrant Scholars through Education) worked with allies to develop a “Family Safety Guide for Immigrants” as a tool for undocumented students or students with mixed-status backgrounds to work with loved ones to be prepared in case of detainment.

 

Although there are many similar guides available, this guide combines Know Your Rights; instructions on how to develop a personalized safety plan; and most importantly, templates to assist individuals with preparing a personalized plan.

 

Arising after the presidential election, the guide was conceived by students who were urgently seeking resources that served as a preventative approach to help alleviate fears and a tangible method to help coordinate families during a time of crisis.

 

Workshop leaders will present an overview of the guide and help participants complete key portions. Workshop leaders will also seek session participants’ input to identify gaps/improvements.

Documented Film Screening with Jose Antonio Vargas*

In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine. The feature film Documented chronicles his journey to the United States from the Philippines as a child; his public struggle as an immigration reform activist/provocateur; and his journey inward as he reconnects with his mother, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years. A broken immigration system leads to broken families and broken lives.
