Events to Support DACA Students

We Stand With DACA Students banner image

On September 5, 2017, the White House formally announced the decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, affecting nearly 800,000 people who were brought to the US as children. In an effort to support and educate our campus community, several events have been planned, thanks to the support of the University of Illinois, the Latino/a Student Alumni Association, Illinois Coalition Assisting Undocumented Students Education (I-CAUSE) and La Casa Cultural Latina.
