Dreamers and DACA – February 15
In recent years, there have been efforts at immigration reform in America, such as the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). However, the DREAM Act failed to pass in congress, and DACA has been rescinded--though that rescission has been met with legal challenges in courts. So where are we now, and what support is available to today’s undocumented students?
Homeless in Modesto – March 22
The 2017 Stanislaus homeless count tallied 1,661 people (including 243 children), and last year approximately 40 homeless people died in our county. Homeless in Modesto puts a face to some of our homeless, showcases some community groups helping them, examines some root causes, and indicates ways residents can help address this complex and costly issue. Following the one-hour film will be a panel discussion with a homeless man now housed, a representative of a local homeless helping agency, and the film team.
Learning Resource Center Workshops
Throughout the semester the library/learning resource center offers 2 hour workshops on citation in MLA and/or researching strategies. There are additional workshops as well, but I will grant credit for either of these two.
