#WhatYourDocumentsDontSay

Henry Cooper

From the syllabus resource: "Our syllabus focuses largely on the impacts that immigration has on families and youth. Immigrant families of both documented and undocumented status face many different issues that have generational impacts. Division of families due to documentation, naturalization (when you become a documented citizen) and born citizenship, splits families and tears children from guardians. In this course, we aim to center the experiences of immigrant families, specifically youth, and the issues they face in terms of education, naturalization, and family division. These issues deny full access to citizenship, regardless of documentation, and access to the nation-state, effectively stripping immigrant youth of their childhood, thrusting them into having to act and defend themselves as adults."

Access to the 10-week course "What Your Documents Don't Say" which is focused on immigration in the United States from a more inclusive perspective.
