Leadership Without Borders

Beyond HB 1079 Conference

As of fall 2018, Leadership Without Borders no longer hosts/leads this student run conference. Please email yurianagarcia10@gmail.com for more information.


Beyond HB 1079 is a conference dedicated to advancing and providing educational opportunities for undocumented students in Washington State regardless of their immigration status. The 5th Annual Beyond HB 1079 Conference is open to undocumented high school and undocumented college students, family members, educators, community members, and advocates.

Through a series of workshops, panels, and interactive discussions we hope to provide awareness and resources, foster student empowerment, build a strong community, and take action. This is a conference from undocumented youth to undocumented youth. We know that as a community we work better when we are one. But most importantly we believe in you, and the power within you.

It is completely free for students and family members, however, transportation cannot be provided. There is a registration fee of $30 for educators and community advocates that will help the team prepare resources and provide the space for important dialogue.
