On April 9th, DEEP Centers coordinated the first inaugural “National Educator’s Coming Out Day” as part of a national effort to encourage educators that currently work with and support undocumented students educational attainment to publically “come out” in support. The purpose of the day was to begin developing the public momentum and narrative associated with undocumented youths educational attainment rates, and to spark conversations with educational institutions on how they can support undocumented student population
To be an unafraid, student, educator and or ally means that we consistently advocate for our right to education through leadership and actions. Join United We Dream’s Dream Educational Empowerment Program on April 7, 2015 for National Institutions Coming Out Day (NICOD)! On NICOD we will uplift the schools/organizations who are working with and for undocumented students and those who want to begin.
