An (Underground) American DREAMer: Julissa Arce's Story From Undocumented Status to Wall Street Executive to Immigration Advocate

Tuesday, 2/6/2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Coats Campus Center, Wille Hall

Julissa will share her story about what it was like "climbing the corporate ladder" as both a Latina and an undocumented immigrant. She has seemingly achieved the American Dream-- yet she was not part of what was defined as American. This, as well as the plight of the millions of other who are undocumented and living in the U.S., compelled her to leave Wall Street and pursue her career as an immigration rights advocate. Julissa will talk about her work in immigration and give an overview of current policies and actions on immigration nationally.
