Students Write Letters in Support of DACA

Salt Lake Community College and the University of Utah student-run newspaper Venceremos hosted a write-in at the SLCC Student Writing Center on the SLCC Taylorsville Redwood Campus in support of DACA and its beneficiaries. Dubbed the "Keep the DREAM alive!" event, staff from the newspaper and Writing Center also held three workshops on how to write letters to members of Congress.

SLCC students (l-r) Eneida Torres, Liliana Sevilla and Jessel Meza and U of U student Celine Fernandez show off some of the letters to members of Congress.
