UCSF Pledges Continued Support for DACA Students

September 12, 2017

A forum was held last week at UCSF to address the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

In opening remarks for the Defending DACA forum, Renee Navarro, MD, vice chancellor of Diversity and Outreach, said, “It’s now more important than ever before for us to stand shoulder to shoulder together in defense of the rights of those who are members of the DACA program.”

Cruz was among the panelists at the forum held in Cole Hall, along with Walter Mancia, a graduate student in biomedical sciences, David Wofsy, MD, associate dean for admission for the School of Medicine, and Rachel Ray, an attorney at the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center.
