Undocumented students, Moral Monday, community organizations and faith leaders will be addressing the cr...owd outside of the BOR building, calling the Board of Regents to bring policy 4.1.6. to the table to be voted on once again as the people of Georgia witness a new era of segregation in the making.
Georgia has effectively instituted a new era of educational segregation. Three years have passed since the Ban came into effect, we can count the students who have not been able to attend this five top universities in the state they call home, but we cannot count the broken dreams and hopes as a result of this segregating policy.
Taking inspiration from the brave students of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, who organized and fought for their right to education in Georgia five decades ago, today, undocumented youth have mobilized in opposition to separate and unequal education in the 21st century.
Students who are effected by policy 4.1.6 have requested to be allowed to address the nineteen members composing the Board of Regents at the meeting on May 20st. We hope that the Board of Regents will listen to the request that is being made not only by undocumented students but by the bigger community across the state of Georgia.
The Moral Monday Georgia movement has offically joined this effort.
