GREENSBORO – This coming Saturday over a hundred local undocumented youth, their family members and experts on legal and employment issues will gather for the Triad’s 2016 DACA Forum. DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is the program announced by President Obama in 2012 which has given temporary relief including work authorization to nearly a million undocumented youth. The forum will be held at the Elliot University Center on the UNCG campus.
“This is an opportunity for employers, education professionals and the families of DACA-eligible youth to find out more about the nuts and bolts of what DACA means,” said Kathy Hinshaw, board president of the Latino Community Coalition of Guilford County. “There is often confusion about who qualifies and what that means for different community stakeholders.”
Student panelists will be join by attorneys, policy specialists and education advisors to discuss the benefits of DACA eligibility for local businesses, universities and other community partners.
There is no fee to attend, and the panel discussion will be followed by a networking lunch. (Registration Form for community members.)
The Latino Community Coalition is comprised of over 130 professionals who represent the Latino community and who serve the community in different agencies across Guilford County. This initiative operates under the Center for New North Carolinians at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro.
