Tech Dreamer’s Twitter’s page
Tonight we had a panel with four of Tech DREAMers fielding questions about their experience since arrival to the U.S. A unique insight into the lives of Latino college students who jumped and continue jumping through uncommon obstacles in pursuit of a Higher Education, the training necessary to impact society in positive ways.

This is the description of today’s activity for the DREAM-related week.
Join Tech DREAMers as we host a panel about the U.S. immigrant detention system. Bringing together different perspectives, this panel will be made up of Laura Sanders, a local artist from Blacksburg whose work focuses on detention centers in the American Southwest; Marybeth Onyeukw, a Black undocumented immigrant rights activist from Washington D.C.; and Dr. Rebecca Hester, a professor in Virginia Tech’s Science and Technology in Society Department whose work focuses on issues of health faced by undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
VT student today hosted a workshop on “coalition building” and invited Black Workers for Justice. We had music, pizza and lots of discussion, particularly from students themselves.
