Undocumented Student Week of Action 2023
Riverside City College is proud to host a variety of events in support of The California Community Colleges' annual Undocumented Student Action Week (USAW), taking place every third week of October. This year, our focus centers on the theme "Creating Belonging for Undocumented Students," we are thrilled to share with you the array of programs and initiatives designed to champion this cause.
The RCC Undocumented Student Taskforce is delighted to present a wide range of programming open to all, and it is our privilege to contribute to this meaningful event. We aim to raise awareness and foster inclusivity for undocumented students in California.
For those who may be unable to attend our events in person, we invite you to consider writing a letter on your own. By doing so, you can help us urge our elected officials to advocate for amnesty and to continue their unwavering support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Your support, whether through your active participation in our on-campus activities or by contributing your advocacy from a distance, is instrumental in our collective efforts to build a more inclusive and welcoming community for undocumented students in California. Together, as part of Riverside City College's commitment to this cause, we can create a sense of belonging and opportunity for all.
