UnidosNow Speaks about Social Justice with Japanese Exchange Students

conversation with Japanese students

A delegation of Japanese students are visiting St. Stephen’s Episcopal School as a part of a exchange program, and Mr. Patrick Whelan, Head of Social Studies, invited UnidosNow’s Executive Director Luz Corcuera to speak with the students.

The discussion was centered in social justice and peace. Issues of poverty, immigration, marginalization, education, and social determinants of health were explored. “This will be the generation crossing across the divides to create a just and peaceful world for our future generations”, Mrs. Corcuera explained.

Tuition Equity for DREAMers

DREAMers - June 10, 2014

 

The Florida Immigrant Coaliton and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released a few months ago a basic fact sheet to guide DREAMers in their understanding of House Bill (HB) 851 on Tuition Equity for DREAMers. This bill allows all Florida high school graduates regardless of status to pay in-state tuition rates at all Florida Public Universities and Colleges.

 

Last June, five DREAMers had the opportunity to meet with Governor Scott and Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera. They expressed their gratitude to the Governor for signing the bill and also took the opportunity to remind him there is so much more at stake and there is much more our immigrant communities in Florida need. They had a conversation on driver’s licenses and its importance not only for the immigrant youth in this state, but also for their parents and our communities overall.

 

Please find below the fact sheets on HB 851 to help you understand the process:
