Material Re: Sanctuary Campuses and Legal Resources For Students

FYI for members! More conversation on this to be had at today’s chapter meeting.

 

Sample Syllabus Language

“As an educator, I fully support the rights of undocumented students to an education and to live free from the fear of deportation. If you have any concerns in that regard, feel free to discuss them with me, and I will respect your wishes concerning confidentiality.

 

[And final sentence options:]

A) Furthermore, I am committed to resisting any and all attacks on immigrants, including threats of deportation, and will urge CUNY to serve as a sanctuary.

B) Furthermore, I am committed to making CUNY a sanctuary campus for undocumented immigrants, not just in word but in deed – through the campus community refusing to allow ICE to enter our campus and refusing to cooperate with and struggling to prevent any government attempts to ascertain the immigration status of members of our community or to detain or deport undocumented immigrants.”
