As a group of concerned students from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, we came together in the Spring of 2017 to educate this community about the many issues affecting the undocumented community. Among the most urgent are 1) The threat of deportation affecting the parents of children who are undocumented, legal permanent residents or American citizens 2) Unequal access to higher education for undocumented students, 3) The rescinding of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and its implications for students, and 4) The threat to other immigrant groups, such as TPS recipients and unacompanied minors.
Our mission is to inform educational leaders at HGSE about the issues undocumented immigrants face, and prepare them to better address these challenges upon graduation as they come into contact with students who are undocumented or who belong to mixed status families (where at least one member of the family is undocumented).
