This collaborative event, organized by local educators, is sponsored by the Athens Immigrant Rights Coalition (AIRC) and Georgia Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (GATESOL).

Vigil for Undocumented Youth

Today, the Trump administration rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that benefits immigrant youth. 

Join the Athens Immigrant Rights Coalition, Dignidad Inmigrante en Athens, and U-Lead Athens as we express our support for and solidarity with undocumented youth and the undocumented community. 

Meet at UGA Arch at 5:30 today. Bring candles, signs, and your voice!
