2020 Undocumented Student Week of Action at Fresno City College

Oct 16, 2020

Fresno City College joins community colleges across the state for Undocumented Student Action Week, October 19-23, 2020, to advocate and provide support services for our undocumented students.

As the nation's largest post-secondary education system and serving the largest number of undocumented students within the state, California Community Colleges are committed to serving all students, regardless of immigration status. 

This year's action week serves as an opportunity to highlight the challenges our undocumented students face in today's current climate and the advocacy efforts being done on their behalf.

Fresno City College's Dream Center opened in 2015 and serves more than 700 students. Last year, the center had about 2,000 visits that included Dreamers and other students such as asylum students and community members who are interested in enrolling in Fresno City College.

"We want to emphasize to our Dreamers that Fresno City College is committed to their academic and personal success. We want them to know that we will advocate for their futures and help them navigate through sometimes difficult policies and circumstances. We know that through education Dreamers can transform their lives here in the United States, "said Bernardo Reynoso, Director of TRIO and the Dream Center. 

In addition to support by Fresno City College and the State Center Community College District, Undocumented Student Action Week is supported statewide by California Community Colleges, the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the Community College League of California, the Student Senate for California Community Colleges, and Immigrants Rising.
