Dr. Gandara is the Co-Director of the Civil Rights Project at UCLA where Dr. Ee did her post-doctoral studies. In addition to raising awareness to drive towards empathy and better outcomes, we explore how to support teachers and other school leaders who are under-resourced and generally unsupported when it comes to engaging with immigrant children and families under threat of deportation and policing by ICE.
