As we wrap up this year’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we hope that you can revisit Increasing Inclusivity for UndocuAPI Students on Your Campus, a resource our Higher Education team worked on with Siyue (Lena) Wang and Madison Villanueva of UPLIFT. Through this resource, we hope to raise awareness of undocuAPI experiences and encourage collective and institutional efforts for inclusion. Please share it with your network so that we can make an even greater impact for the students who need it.
Our efforts to increase visibility and build power with our undocuAPI loved ones go beyond the month of May. In the face of heightened violence against our communities, we invite you to join us in supporting, uplifting, and empowering undocuAPIs.
✊ SUPPORT SB 1141
SB 1141, which expands AB 540 so that more undocumented students can qualify for in-state tuition and financial aid in California, passed the California Senate and must now pass the California Assembly. We need your help in reaching the Assembly members for their support in the passage of this bill.
