A Call to Action: Supporting LACCD Undocumented Students

Part of Undocumented Student Action Week

Undocumented Student Action Week

Serving the largest number of undocumented students in the state, California Community Colleges are committed to serving ALL students, regardless of immigration status. In its 4th year, Undocumented Student Action Week, October 19-23, 2020, is a system-wide campaign to advocate and provide support resources for our undocumented student population. During the week, California’s community colleges are encouraged to engage in advocacy and support efforts in solidarity with undocumented students throughout the state.
