2. Upcoming CCSF Photography Department Gallery Exhibition: Space Oddity


Showcases the use of negative space through black and white film. It demonstrates absence and the notion that it is not necessarily the subject that is important, but the space surrounding.

3. Invite to April 12 SF DACA-thon! Please invite your DACAmented/undocumented friends and allies!


All City College students are invited to join us on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 5:30pm for an SF Bay Area DACA-Thon! It's a party with a purpose: to get people to apply for DACA!

The DACA-thon will be Tuesday, April 12 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm
 at Impact Hub San Francisco, 901 Mission Street, #105 in SF. 


Here's the Facebook page!

It's like a Hackathon, except that instead of teams working to come up with a tech solution (like an app), we'll be coming up with a communications/ social media campaign to get more Bay Area residents to apply for DACA! The winning team will get a prize and the winning campaign will help locals access the benefits of DACA.

There's free food, plus prizes for the winning team!

Please join us and bring your friends. Participants can be DACA recipients themselves, other undocumented immigrants, or their allies -- anyone interested in immigrant rights or social media / communications. 


Please RSVP (and get more info) online:



MCd by:
Ju Hong, Outreach Coordinator, National AAPI DACA Collaborative

Hosted by:
New America Media, in collaboration with the San Francisco Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (SFOCEIA), ASPIRE, API Legal Outreach, CARECEN, Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), Fwd.us, Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) and International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA).

I hope to see you there on April 12! RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/sfdacathon
