"It was eye opening to hear the immigration stories of those on the zoom call and how difficult it is for those seeking asylum in the USA to obtain a green card and citizenship."

"I'm so excited to be a part of this Ally community. We serve so many Hispanic/Latinx and other students who come from immigrant backgrounds. Thank you for putting this together. I will look forward to further training opportunities. I would also love to get some of our students involved and/or employed!"

"Thank you for this awesome opportunity! The university is woefully lacking in terms of informed people and actual resources for immigrant affected folks so I hope these trainings continue in the coming year."
