Undocually: Guttman Community College. No Human is Illegal

October 13, 2022

We hosted our first “Guttman Stands with Immigrants” event on October 13, 2022. Students, staff, and faculty were invited to write messages of support and allyship on paper butterflies, the symbol of migration, and attach them to a banner that will be displayed on the walls of the College. CUNY Citizenship Now and The NYS Youth Leadership Council tabled at the event and remarks were made by Dr. Cynthia Carvajal, Interim Director for Undocumented and Immigrant Student Programs at CUNY, Larry Johnson, President of GCC, Sonia Gaglani, SGA President and Sabrina Lozier, SGA Vice President. This event was co-sponsored by CUNY Edge.
