Los Medanos College (LMC) will be joining California Community Colleges and the Community College League of California in advocacy and activities to support and build awareness about undocumented students throughout the state. Undocumented Student Week of Action, October 15-19, 2018, is a student-led campaign for a permanent solution to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, that includes a pathway to citizenship, and also to provide support and resources to ALL undocumented students.
Learn to be a DACA ally from the International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA).

What you need to know about the repeal of DACA
In solidarity as a district we will continue to offer CA Dreamers access to education and have put policies in place to keep both you and your personal information protected.

In light of the recent political climate we are committed to providing information for you and your family. Below you will find news, policies, and information on where to get assistance.
