Online Event: Civic Participation and California Immigrants

In this free virtual program, we discuss the state of civic power for immigrants and DACA status holders in California – electoral and beyond – from California’s founding to current day. Join a panel of scholars and immigration experts to learn more about today’s policy landscape in California, its historical framework, and to consider what role California’s immigrant communities might play in the future of citizenship.

California is home to 183,000 DACA recipients and nearly 1 in 4 Californians is foreign born. What civic powers do DACA status holders have in California? How is voter access offered at the local, state and federal levels? On its tenth anniversary, what is the legacy of this landmark program?  Join us on Zoom on August 11 at 4pm for Civic Participation and California Immigrants. To register, use the link below.
