Bring Hope Home: Immigrant Rights in Central Florida

Community Partners: Hope CommUnity Center

Apopka, FL

Jan. 15, 2022 – Jan. 16, 2022

Coordinator: Maeher Sukhjia & Theo Heffner

Social Issues: Immigrant Rights

Hope CommUnity Center is a service-learning community dedicated to helping the Central Florida immigrant and working communities through education, advocacy and spiritual growth. We will be engaging in farmwork to better understand the conditions of many members of the farmworker community, and have discussions around themes such as the immigration system, root causes of migration and community leadership. We will also be staying with host families to further learn about their experiences and stories by stepping into it for a night.
