Virtual Op-Ed Writing Session hosted by SCRA's Immigrant Justice group 

The Immigrant Justice group would like to invite YOU to bring your expertise and voice as a community psychologist to local and national conversations regarding immigration policy. 
 
We have been asked by United We Dream, the largest youth-led immigrant rights organization in the U.S., to support their work on protecting the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In the face of increasing xenophobic rhetoric, United We Dream seeks to change the narrative in communities regarding immigrants. They invited us to engage the public through op-eds, as op-eds can support narrative shift and call people to action.
 
This will be an opportunity for YOU to join other SCRA members to engage in a discussion about writing op-eds, spend dedicated time drafting one, and get peer editing and feedback. By the end of our 3 hours together, we hope that you'll have an op-ed ready (or nearly ready) to submit to your local paper!  If you can't come for the whole time, consider joining us for part of the time and working on a letter to the editor (LTE) instead!  
 
There is no need to prepare in advance of our meeting; simply come with an idea! You can learn more about this effort in The Community Psychologist.  
 
What can your op-ed or LTE be about?
- DACA in your community or state
- DACA at your university
- The importance of DACA and its positive impacts across the United States
- and more
 
The more people who write op-eds or LTEs, the broader the reach of our message.  We hope you join us!  
 
Please contact Sara at sbuckingham@alaska.edu or Kevin at k.ferreiravanleer@csus.edu for more information.
