" I am excited to be a Millenium Fellow so I can share the work I am doing with other students. So much of what we are doing is elevating the voices of the vulnerable, and I want as many passionate young people to hear these stories and experiences as possible, so that they can join us in the fight for change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Impacts of Anti-Immigrant Policy and Politics on Low-Income Latinx Immigrants in Apopka, FL
Our initial project goal was to complete analysis of data we gathered over the summer and provide preliminary reports to the organizations we are working with. That has been completed, and both organizations are using it to develop programming for the hundreds of people that seek their services. I added an additional goal, which was completing an UndocuAlly training, in order to help educate members of the Rollins College community on the realities of undocumented immigration and how to be a better ally, as well as share some of our research. This event was also completed, with 14 participants. These participants were provided with resources to become more involved in the fight for immigrant justice.
