LSC-North Harris to host April 22 civic engagement forum on Texas DREAM Act

With measures currently pending in the Texas legislature that could end the 2001 DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act, Lone Star College-North Harris is hosting a public forum to encourage a thoughtful discussion about the issue. The DREAM Act forum will take place on Wednesday, April 22 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the college’s student center (SC-200). The campus is located at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive in Houston, Texas.

“This as an important topic that directly impacts many individuals throughout Lone Star College,” said LSC-North Harris professor of history, Dr. Jim Good. “The proposed legislation presents us with an excellent opportunity to teach our students the value of civic engagement, and to encourage them to directly participate in productive dialogue with others.”

Participants will be provided with current background information on the topic, and divided into groups to discuss specific questions pertaining to the DREAM Act and potential changes to it. Ultimately, each group will present the results of their discussions to everyone in the room.

The forum is open to LSC-North Harris students, employees, and interested members of the community. A free pizza lunch will be provided to those in attendance.
