PA Immigrant Youth ConferenceDec 18 2013
On December 14, PICC in collaboration with Juntos, Church World Service and Villanova University hosted the first Pennsylvania Immigrant Youth Conference at Villanova University. The conference convened Pennsylvania undocumented youth from Delaware, Chester, Lancaster, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
The conference was designed to teach future undocumented youth leaders about the power of organizing for the Pennsylvania Dream Act, a bill that will grant in-state tuition to undocumented students of the Commonwealth. Erika Andiola and Caesar Vargas from the Dream Action Coalition, Giancarlo Tello from the New Jersey Dream Act Coalition and Miguel Andrade from Juntos trained our PA Dreamers.
This conference is only the beginning of Pennsylvania’s youth working together for education equality in the state of Pennsylvania!
