Support L.E.A.D. at Chico State
The purpose of LEAD is to create a support system within undocumented students and allies, spreading awareness throughout the campus, engaging in political activism and creating an image that CSU Chico supports those who have been affected by immigration issues.
Every Dollar Counts
Leaders Educating for the Advancement of Dreamers needs your help! We are fundraising to help support our undocumented students on campus. Did you know that there is approximately 300-500 undocumented students currently attending CSU Chico? The biggest challenge the undocumented community is currently facing is the termination of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA was an executive order passed in 2012 by former President Barrack Obama that allowed people who were brought to the US as children the temporary right to live, study and work in America. However, on September 5th the trump administration rescinded DACA, which set fear of uncertainty within the undocumented community.
Our students currently in the program, that obtain DACA-related benefits such as work authorization, obtaining a driver’s license, and social security number are having to come to terms with the idea of losing those benefits. Therefore, our goal is to fundraise money for scholarships, textbooks, groceries, medical emergencies and housing, for our undocumented students in need.
Five grants of $100 for groceries to help with food insecurity.
Five grants of $250 for medical emergencies (undocumented students have limited access to health insurance and medical care).
Six grants of $250 that can be used for school supplies, textbooks, course material, etc.
Five grants of $300 for housing assistance (Rent, bills and other housing expenses).
