The program offers students the opportunity to engage in activist and/or advocacy work by collaborating directly with community-based organizations. Students will participate in one of two tracks – strategic, community-based research aligned with community organizational activist campaigns or immigration legal advocacy focused on immigrant detention and related policy issues. This year the focus of the program is on resistance to the carceral state.
The summer immigration institute is run by sociology Professor Eric Popkin in collaboration with the Colorado College Center for Global Education and Field Study, and the Colorado College Career Center.
For more information and to receive an application, please reach out to Professor Eric Popkin (email@example.com) if you have any other questions. Application due January 28th.
