Immigration policies and administrative decisions affecting immigrants are happening at an almost breakneck speed. Because so many service providers have immigrant clients, individuals in many sectors can benefit from even a surface understanding of these policies and decisions. The pre-recorded session prior to the Ask the Expert session covers topics such as the REAL ID Act, Dream & Promise any, immigration raids, DACA before the Supreme Court, Expanded Expedited Removal, and Public Charge updates.

At the UC Center, Rachel handles an immigration caseload and oversees immigration legal services provision to students and their family members at UCSF, UC Davis, UC Merced, and UC Santa Cruz.

This video is intended to increase the understanding of the effects of historical and intergenerational trauma in Native communities. It will also increase awareness of effects of settler colonialism on communities of color.
This video recording is designed to aid the implicit bias workbook produced in collaboration with Taquelia Washington.
Japanese Intergenerational Trauma and Cultural Resilience: Implications for Survivors and Victims of Crime
This webinar invites and engages professionals in critical reflection and dialogue about American history that centers Japanese American experiences of war, profiling, surveillance, forced removal, incarceration, and state-sponsored trauma, which continues to impact generations of Nikkei (people of Japanese descent) and their families in the United States. Participants will explore topics of intergenerational trauma, cultural values, and various socio-political realities which may influence a Nikkei survivor’s experience as a victim of crime, as well as what professionals should be prepared to know when working with people of Japanese descent.
