2021 Keeping the Dream Alive Conference: fostering joint action across people, spaces and systems

Conference Overview

Through the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and emerging practices, the Annual Keeping the Dream Alive Conference enables educators, practitioners, and other professionals to become agents of change in their respective institutions and continue advancing the success of undocumented students and students from mixed-status families. This year’s theme, Fostering Joint Action Across People, Spaces, and Systems brings attention to the collaborative nature of undocumented student support and the importance of relationship-building across various levels and sectors of influence. Speakers, panels, and breakout sessions will explore how collaborations and partnerships between allies, educational spaces, and other institutions can support and uplift students impacted by undocumented status.

This year, the conference will be held virtually on Thursday, November 18, and Friday, November 19, 2021.
