How to support undocumented students!
On January 23rd, 250 students, educators and allies from across the valley showed up at the Arizona Capitol for Education Day to speak with both Democrats and Republicans about the importance of tuition equity!
We are going back to the Arizona Capitol on May 29! We are refocusing our efforts and pivoting to amplify student resolutions supporting instate tuition & merit based scholarships at AZ Public community colleges & universities for all Arizona High School graduates regardless of immigration status.
If you cannot make it to the event. Look through this toolkit to see how you can help from home!
Create a 30-45 second video showing your support!

As we attend graduation ceremonies, it’s important to keep in mind the 2,000 undocu-students that graduate every year in Arizona that are NOT eligible for instate tuition. Our communities are losing the talented students and what they have to offer
Today I ask that our AZ legislators support putting a measure on the ballot to allow voters to support all AZ high school grads regardless of immigration status. The future of Arizona is depending on us. @FannKfann @dougducey
Undocu-students contribute to tuition through property, sales, & income taxes. It’s only fair to make dreamers eligible to pay instate tuition. Our AZ legislators have the power to let voters decide. #EducatedAF
