DACA Myth Busters

Leadership Without Borders has launched a digital campaign to demystify DACA concerns. The main objective is to create, develop, and share solutions on how we can support undocumented communities in Washington State. By creating best practices, such as myth busting misinformation on DACA–which has been recreated with permission of the Everett Community College’s Office of Diversity and Equity–we are able to provide support for undocumented students and give them knowledge they can use in their future.

Many students fear they cannot attend college due to their undocumented status; however, this is a myth along with many others that discourage students desiring higher education. We have launched a digital campaign to bring awareness to our undocumented students and campus community about myths and the DACA Program. Each week, we will bust another myth and offer resources on what to do in each scenarios. The workshops are as followed: Week 1- Jan. 8, Week 2- Jan. 15, Week 3- Jan. 22, Week 4 – Jan. 29, Week 5- Feb. 5 and Week 6- Feb. 12. All students are encouraged to come and learn more about DACA!
