On the Responsibility of Dreamers
Thursday, December 9, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
At what point does an undocumented immigrant become an American in the making? Join Dr. Alberto Ledesma, assistant dean for diversity, inclusion, and equity at UC Berkeley, for a candid conversation about his journey from undocumented immigrant to a leader at the University of California. Dr. Ledesma will share stories, musings and drawings from his 2017 memoir, “Diary of a Reluctant Dreamer, Undocumented Vignettes from a Pre-American Life.” Twenty-five randomly chosen participants will receive a copy of Dr. Ledesma’s book.
This event is part of the Confronting Racism speaker series, organized and cosponsored by Graduate, Undergraduate and Equity Affairs (GUEA) and the Office of Workplace Inclusion and Belonging (OWIB).
