Human Rights Discussion on Undocumented Students in Georgia


The Human Rights Interest Group of the Commission on Global Social Work Education invites you to join us in conversation with Emiko Soltis, PhD, executive director of Atlanta-based Freedom University on Friday November 4, 5:00 pm–6:30 pm, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Room L504. She and her students will discuss the challenges faced by Georgia's undocumented young people as they try to pursue higher education. Freedom University was founded to allow educational opportunities for students because Georgia law bans undocumented youths from attending Georgia's top five public universities and prohibits undocumented students from qualifying for in-state tuition.
