The day we've been waiting for.
Clear your calendar - The first Coming Out of the Shadows at IIT will happen on April 16th, and you're invited to take part in this event.
Join us as Undocumented Students and Allies at IIT will share their stories of struggle and persistence. We will do this in a space where we are constantly reminded to stay silent about a part of our identity.
National Coming Out of the Shadows started in Chicago, Illinois on March 10th, 2010 (iyjl.org/comingout) when undocumented youth declared they were “undocumented and unafraid” at Federal Plaza, facing the immigration and federal office building. Around the country, other undocumented youth did the same, some times escalating to civil disobedience in support of immigrant rights.
Come one, come all, and bring a friend. Support us as we declare that #weareIIT, that we are no longer in the shadows, and that we are no longer afraid!
