Race & Immigration
By diving deeply into our Race & Immigration Issue Area, you’ll gain an understanding of the effects of racial injustice and current immigration practices, and work with organizations who address oppression through their commitment to empowerment, inclusion and diversity.
The opportunities for engaging in the Race & Immigration Issue Area are complex and multi-dimensional, providing vast opportunities for increasing your understanding. Experiences include:
- Spanish Service-Learning Classes: Partner with Latino youth and adults to practice using your knowledge and skills while deepening your understanding about immigrant identity, heritage and culture, and the immigrant paradox
- MANOS: Mentor Latino youth through a Buncombe County Schools leadership program
- Break Trip: The Realities of the American Dream Break Trip helped students collaborate with Americus Mennonite Fellowship, Alterna Community, Koinonia Farm and the Fuller Center. Students drew connections between historical and contemporary racial inequality, learning about the complexities of the modern debate around immigration
