Immigrants Rights workshop
at Spitzer Hillel Forum
Tekiah presented a workshop at the national Spitzer Hillel Forum. The workshop encouraged students to think about their own families' histories of immigration and connect those stories to the struggles of immigrants today. The workshop had a particular focus on undocumented immigrants and their struggle in Massachusetts and elsewhere to have the opportunity to attend state colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates.
