The purpose of this session is to provide participants with the knowledge necessary to create resources to support undocumented students on their campuses. Based off a model implemented by the Los Rios College Federation of Teachers in the Los Rios Community College District in Sacramento, California --we highlight how an UndocuAlly program can not only create a safer campus by improving awareness and shifting pedagogical approaches on campus, but can also serve as an important resource for developing and sustaining community partnerships with local schools, school districts, and non-profits. Learning Objectives include: 1) To provide an overview of a research driven UndocuAlly training 2) To develop an understanding of the mental health and well being as it relates to undocumented communities' experiences. 3) To create action plans for creating programs and trainings to support undocumented students and their families on participants' campuses. 4) To highlight potential areas for mutually beneficial institutional partnerships.
