FRESNO CFA CHAPTER HOSTS UNDOCUMENTED STORIES: A MULTIMEDIA EXHIBIT”: The Dream Resource Center at UCLA produced this story-telling exhibit to showcase the lives of today’s undocumented immigrants, many of them young students working to improve public policy affecting immigrants in higher education, health and other areas.

Fresno CFA Chapter President Diane Blair says, “We are excited to bring this exhibit to Fresno State in support of our 1,200 DACA students and their families. It’s crucial to hear the stories of our immigrant community and, now more than ever, we need to connect those stories to the human beings whose lives and dreams are at stake in the current political debates.”

The exhibit will appear March 16-24 in the Fresno University Theatre lobby during the run of the play Lydia by Octavio Solis.
