February 1, 2022


Northridge — The University Student Union (USU) invites undocumented and mixedstatus CSUN students to join the DREAM Center for the two special installments of Coffee Talks – Undoculove on Thursday, Feb. 10 and in celebration of Black History Month, The Invisible Intersection: Being Undocumented and Black on Monday, Feb. 21. Gather online in a student led, brave space via Zoom where students can engage in conversation. Discover all the different layers of shared experiences with our “Undocu”-themed topics and community support provided by the DREAM Center.

“The DREAM Center understands how intersectionality affects many different aspects of life such as love,” said Daniela Barcenas, DREAM Center Manager. “Coffee Talks provides an open space where students are welcomed with open arms and the company of others who also resonate with their experience.”

Connect and engage in valuable conversations relevant to the immigrant community during these supportive discussion groups. On Thursday, Feb. 10 from 2:30 to 4 p.m., “Undoculove” discusses what love is all about in the context of family, community and ourselves. In honor of Black History Month, The Invisible Intersection: Being Undocumented and Black, dives into topics surrounding the intersectionality of being undocumented and Black on Monday, Feb. 21 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Not only will attendees find a nurturing support system, but they will also find helpful resources from the DREAM Center.

The DREAM Center wants undocumented and mixed-status Matadors to take this opportunity to be kind to themselves and bond with people who know what they are going through at Coffee Talks. For more information on this event, please visit csun.edu/dreamcenter or email .
