Social Justice Activism
Acción por Justicia Social 

The social justice activism project offers students a chance to volunteer for 15 hours during the semester in a community or campus organization. The intention is to offer students the opportunity to move beyond the classroom and be part of collectives that struggle with concrete social problems that affect Latina/o communities in San Diego/Tijuana. Options are below.

Immigrant Student Support Committee

In response to the current threats to our immigrant students and their communities, as well as communities of color in general, the Immigrant Student Support Committee has been created. It advocates for clear policies and dedicated support to immigrant students, their families and their communities. Some of the initial goals of the committee will include: 
  • Creating a center for undocumented students and all immigrant students to get information, support, and advice.
  • Advocating for clear policies at City College regarding not collaborating with ICE.
  • Participating in a county coalition of organizations interested in supporting the immigrant community in San Diego County.
  • Collaborating with the City College faculty and staff union (California Federation of Teachers) both in San Diego and statewide to create a plan to protect undocumented and immigrant students and communities.
This committee meets Friday at noon and Wednesday at 2:30 pm, Room MS 451

Mixteco Cultural Exchange Program

Familia Indigena Unida was established in December 2006 in the community of Linda Vista, San Diego, CA. It promotes self-sufficiency and culture preservation among the Mixtec people, an indigenous group from the southern Mexican states of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Puebla. The program has grown over the years so that we now provide services to many immigrants in Linda Vista from other Mexican States as well as Central and South America. 

We provide instruction classes in Spanish, English, and Mixtec to adults and for children ages 5-20 we enrolled them to our youth mentoring program to develop their critical thinking by learning and preserving their culture and language.
