Community Dialogue | Unity & Solidarity

On behalf of the Community College of Denver’s Care Team, we would like to acknowledge the fear and concern experienced by many of our CCD community members, particularly those who are affiliated with the DACA/ASSET program or who identify as having undocumented legal status. As many gather in solidarity across the nation and on our own Auraria campus, we would like to share that we support each individual community member and seek to encourage an individual’s right to further their knowledge.

In response to these experiences, the CCD Care Team will host a Community Dialogue. CCD students, staff, and faculty are invited to come together to allow for reflection and discussion surrounding possible changes to the DACA/ASSET initiative. This is a space for unity, support, and growth. It is a space to acknowledge the impact this has and find solace together. Light refreshments will be provided and representatives from the CCD Care Team, Counseling Center, and Student Life office will be present.  

Support

Additionally, we would like to emphasize communities of support for anyone experiencing stress or trauma surrounding these events. These groups/organizations are available to all CCD students and provide a space where they can openly share and process what is happening for themselves.
