Spring 2018 events 

  • 16 April - 01 June 2018:  – Pierce Community Immigration Journey: An Interactive Exhibit - Location: Pierce Library

  • These illustrations were created to emphasize the important contributions immigrants have made, not only within our country, but also within the Pierce College community.  As we continue to focus on sharing immigrant and refugee stories of our campus community, and the families who have been forced to leave their homeland, we must understand the underlying circumstances behind why they leave.  They leave all they know behind due to war, famine, genocide, hardships and/or other unknown disasters. This topic is very relevant in the current political climate.  It is also a global issue. We hope that by sharing our stories, we can provide the human side of immigration and educate ourselves about each other's extraordinary experiences.

  • 27 April 2018: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm - Immigration Celebration and Resource Fair - Location: Great Hall 

  • This fair will provide numerous resource tables from the campus, LA Community College District, community-based organizations and government agencies; get help with immigration, housing, and employment-related legal matters at a FREE On-Site Legal Clinic; presentations by a Pulitzer Prize winner and other reputable professionals speak on immigration and facilitate discussions, as well as answer questions; and much more.
