Holistic & Transformative Support for UndocuScholars

Mar 7, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

In the pursuit of an inclusive and diverse educational landscape, it is essential to confront and address the unique challenges faced by undocumented students. Educators, policymakers, and allies must engage in meaningful dialogue and take strategic action to foster genuine equity and justice for these individuals within our educational systems. Join this session to help shape an educational environment which recognizes the value of UndocuScholars through holistic support solutions beyond the classroom—immigration legal services, mental health support, and undocu-resource centers.
