A lunch and learn with artist Yehimi Cambrón, who will share resources for those faculty and staff interested in engaging and supporting undocumented students. Lunch will be provided. Please register so that we may plan for you.
Yehimi Cambrón arrived to college as an undocumented student in the fall of 2010. She received a tuition, room and board scholarship but there were still many challenges with being a student who didn’t have access to the resources that many other students have including being able to work on or off campus without a social security card. She was also a first generation college student and this intersecting identity is one that shaped her experience as well. Upon hearing about the process for applying for the Deferred Action for Early Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Yehimi worked with individuals on campus to immediately apply for the program. As a DACAmented student, she begin to organize even more regularly around the issues that were of importance to her including advocating for undocumented artists and pursuing her passion for activism through art.
