UndocuPride Speaker's Bureau Interns

Our UndocuPRIDE Speaker’s Bureau internship provides participants with the opportunity to cultivate knowledge and skill for supporting undocumented peers at UC Davis and beyond. Our interns use personal narrative as a tool to urge community members to think of ways in which they can help create welcoming and inclusive spaces for undocumented students everywhere they go. The UndocuPRIDE Speakers Bureau team facilitates UndocuAdvocate Program for Peers, serve as student panelists for our UndocuAdvocate Program for Educators, and meet together monthly for community empowerment and developmental opportunities.
