FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Northridge — The DREAM Center of the University Student Union (USU) invites all undocumented students, students from mixed-status families, and allies to share their stories and make connections at virtual “Coffee Talks”. On Friday, Oct. 9 and Friday, Oct. 23 from 2:30 to 4 p.m., the DREAM Center is excited to host this brave and safe space online for undocumented and mixed status CSUN students to feel welcome and at home. All participants are invited to engage in compelling conversations on a variety of interesting topics. In October, we will explore spirituality to open your mind, body, and heart and then celebrate the spooky season with a mystical circle with your fellow undocu family at the DREAM Center!
“We want to create that sense of belonging for all undocumented students, even throughout this online school year,” said Gemma Jimenez, Student DREAM Center Assistant. “The center is offering some fun and engaging events this semester that will definitely help our students to connect with their campus.”
Open your mind to the first “Coffee Talks” via Zoom this October where you’ll explore your inner self by engaging in discussions centering on the many facets of our spirituality. Then, in the second installment, get ready for some good times and spooky storytelling with guest speaker Juan Cardenas, freelance poet and musician from San Fernando, where Cardenas will be telling mystical tales about his hometown Guanajuato, Mexico and every- one can frighten their new friends with tales you learned from family, friends, culture and life experiences.
Take advantage of this great opportunity to create community and self-growth for all DREAM Center participants at “Coffee Talks”. If you’re interested in attending in these exciting installments, please visit bit.ly/f20dcct1 For more information, please visit csun.edu/dreamcenter.
