Green will be the main presenter at the Being Black and Undocumented series, which will be hosted in room 322 of the Lory Student Center from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The event itself is a part of the “Black & Series,” which Student Diversity Programs and Services office and the Black and African American Cultural Center will be doing throughout the month of February in honor of Black History Month.

Jonathan currently serves as the Director of the UndocuBlack Network, a Network of directly affected Black undocumented people fighting to transform their own realities.

Correspondingly, for this particular event, the B/AACC office will also be partnering with fellow SDPS office, the Asian/Pacific American Cultural Center.   

Jonathan currently serves as the Director of the UndocuBlack Network, a Network of directly affected Black undocumented people fighting to transform their own realities.

The purpose of the event is to promote awareness that there are black people affected by DACA and being undocumented, as well as help the students at CSU who are directly affected, gain more advocates and allies. The hope is to have as many CSU students at the event as possible, be that as it may, reservations are required for the event, and there are only about 60 seats available.
