Undocu Summit 2021: Celebrating & Amlpifying Undocu Joy

This year’s summit brings together higher education institutions and organizations across the state to bring discussions to celebrate and amplify Undocu Joy. Our hope is to share authentic and joyful moments to disrupt misrepresentations of immigrant and undocumented communities. In light of the social and political events across the country it also provides an opportunity to center the discourse on the many intersectional identities within these communities, as well as continuing to build & rebuild communities, coalition and the human spirit!
