Our immigrant students, teachers, staff, and administrators have been subjected to scapegoating and prejudice within the political arena, which creates a working and studying environment where members of our college communities may feel alienated, unwelcome, and unsafe. In reaction, we need to stand together to show the character of our community.

The strength of our solidarity and unity rests on the understanding we have for and about each others’ struggles. Visit ‘Stand With Students Project Facebook page‘ Post a picture with a message with why you are standing upin support of our immigrant students, teachers, staff, and administrators!”
