Help Bard Students Go To the National Student Conference
Organized by: Acacia Handel
EVENT DATE Jan 29, 2016
Bard College students have been invited to attend an extraordinary conference hosted by undocumented students and Georgia student allies, and we desperately need YOUR help to get there!
In Georgia, undocumented students are denied access to higher education through Policy 4.3.4 and Policy 4.1.6, which effectively deny undocumented students admission to select public universities and in-state tuition.
The conference aims to:
-Strengthen relationships between undocumented students in Georgia and documented allies.
-Raise consciousness of the connection between historical and current events related to student activism, immigrant rights, interracial solidarity, and equal access to higher education.
-Deepen commitment to the struggle to end modern educational segregation and advance justice for undocumented students in the U.S.
That's where we come in, and that's where we urgently need YOUR help! While all of our expenses will be covered while we are in Atlanta, we unfortunately have not been able to secure funding for transportation from New York to Atlanta and back, which will cost a total of $3,250 for all of us.
Attending this conference, and deepening our collaboration with our undocumented peers would be an exceedingly valuable opportunity for us as student activists, and we would be so grateful if you would help bring this dream to fruition. So please, please help us to stand in solidarity with our fellow students.
Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you for your support!
