Undocumented immigrants who attend Harvard College will publicly share their stories Saturday, in an effort to collect signatures in support of what they describe as "a fair and humane" immigration reform bill.
The student group Act on a DREAM at Harvard College is sponsoring the talk, "Out of the Shadows." According to a statement issued by the group, the event will be held on Saturday at 5:30 p.m., on the steps of The Memorial Church at Harvard.
Harvard Law School professor Deborah Anker will speak about immigration reform along with other speakers from Harvard and Boston.
"This event will mark an important moment for the undocumented Harvard community and will hopefully bring attention to aspects of Comprehensive Immigration Reform that has not been given enough attention by politicians or the media," the statement says. "Act on a Dream hopes to collect signatures from students and spectators to advocate for the passage of a fair and humane Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill, which will then be sent to legislators in Washington, D.C."
