As a growing coalition of teachers, school staff, and youth organizers, we are committed to making our schools & classrooms safer and more supportive spaces for our immigrant students. We're also committed to organizing for policy change.

At the student-led teach-in, students will share their experiences, their knowledge, and their perspectives as immigrant students. We know that those who are closest to the problem are closest to the solutions!
