Service-Learning Students Help Immigrants Learn Their Rights

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Professor Deb Reisinger's French 270T S-L course recently spent time translating the "know your rights" deportation document for their community partners. The Swahili class worked up a version in Swahili as well that will be sent to Church World Services to distribute to their clients.

They also wrote postcards to elected officials about the new refugee cap. According to Reisinger, it was a great exercise in content and language as they discussed the new caps (from 110,000 to 50,000), and how the new order might affect their partners.
