You are invited to become more knowledgeable about this topic. Co-Presenters: Leslie Soriano-Cervantes, Counselor LCC; Javier Cervantes, Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion LBCC.  The presentation will cover the DACA/DREAM Act, DACA renewal pointers, status of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Oregon immigration policy issues ,and techniques on how to create safe spaces when undocumented students disclose their immigration status.
