Know Your Rights and What Allies Can Do
Due to widespread uncertainty surrounding actions taken by local and federal authorities in the enforcement of immigration policies ordered by President Trump, several campus and community partners are organizing a panel discussion and workshop to educate our community about basic rights granted to all individuals regardless of country of origin. In addition, the event will serve to inform allies of what they can do to support and protect DREAMers and DACA recipients at KU and in our communities. Panelists include:
- Charlie Bankart, Associate Vice Provost of International Programs;
- Doug Bonney, Chief Counsel & Legal Director, ACLU Foundation of Kansas;
- Lua Kamal Yuille, Associate Professor of Law;
- Stacy Mendez, Director, Heartland College Assistance Migrant Program
- Alejandra Hernandez-Castro, Coordinator, Heartland College Assistance Migrant Program
Please join us on Monday, April 24, 2017 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. in the Divine Nine Room, Kansas Memorial Union. The event is open to the public.
This is event is supported by the KU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Hispanic American Leadership Organization, Latinx Studies Initiative, Office of Vice Provost of Diversity and Equity, Office of Senior Vice Provost of Academic Affairs, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Kansas African Studies Center, Center for Migration Research, and Office of Multicultural Affairs.
