Undocu-Circles

Undocu-Circles are affirming spaces for Dreamers and undocumented students to create community with one another. Facilitated by our Dream Team staff, we welcome our diverse students to come share their unique immigrant stories.

Each Undocu-Circle is different. Sometimes, we start with a fun icebreaker then discuss the rewards and challenges of being an immigrant; other times, students participate in a collaborative activity, play a game, or just watch a movie. No matter what, the goal is to build community!

Upcoming Sessions

  • 9/24: Coping with Anxiety Over Your Immigration Status
  • 10/15: Undocu-mentaries We Love: Underwater Dreams (2014)
  • 12/4: La Lotería
