Undocumented & Higher Education

2 Hours

For Educators & Student Affairs Professionals

This workshop is catered to educators and student affairs professionals. It covers:

  • The importance of being aware and conscious of the undocumented experience in higher education
  • A brief explanation of HB1079 and DACA
  • Heavily focuses on our own biases, internalized racism, and how to better support undocumented students

This is not a how-to step by step but rather turning inwards with your team and accessing your power in making a difference in your institution for and with undocumented students.

The Criminalization, Exploitation, and Disposal of Immigrants

1 Hour

The Criminalization, Exploitation, and Disposal of Immigrants in terms of history, policy, and the media. This is an extended version of my first TEDx Talk. We have to look at language, policies, institutions to understand the structural system racism forced upon immigrants and undocumented immigrants.

Furthering my research on exploitation and detention this workshop will advance your understanding of the ideologies and institutions that criminalize, exploit, and dispose of immigrants. This workshop will help you view those ideologies and institutions through a different lens to better critically understand the context of US history and undocumented immigrants.

Parallels of Mass Incarceration and Mass Detention

45 Minutes

This workshop is to access the parallels of mass incarceration and mass detention on stolen land. The public safety narrative has manipulated the American people to adopt racist practices that have caged millions of people. Caging people for profit and labor are acts of violence against humanity. US history paints a clear picture of the targeted abuse towards Black and Brown communities. Our objective is to walk through the parallels you cannot unsee.

A Process of Elimination

1 Hour

Interactive Session

I’ve done this interactive session with thousands of people! Ranging from all ages, backgrounds, identities. I’ve never given it a name until now but I’ve seen this be effective in every setting I’ve done this in. We start with identifying 4 key components of our lives and unpacking the importance of those. One by one we start eliminating our chosen key components and learning the true importance of sharing those with others. Prepare to get a little more acquainted with your team. 10 minute introduction, 45 minutes of activity and 10 minutes of closing remarks and Q&A.

This session can be included with all workshops by request.
