Merced College and the Consulado De Mexico En Fresno will team up to host a workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 20 for all interested students and employees effected or have family or friends effected by pending changes to end the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The workshop is designed to inform students and employees of the resources available to them, assist eligible DACA students with getting their new applications in by the Oct. 4 deadline, and answer questions regarding any legal concerns.
The workshop will be held in Study Central from noon to 2 p.m. with priority given to students.
The workshop will be a precursor to an open forum which will be held in the Lesher Auditorium from 2-3 p.m. Speakers from the Education and Leadership Foundation (ELF) will talk about the DACA program, the current climate of the state and country, options available to people and field questions from the students and community.
