About the Undocumented Ally Program

The Undocumented Ally Program is a network of Santa Monica College faculty, staff, managers, and students that are committed to providing support, education, and understanding to our SMC undocumented students.

To be an Ally, you must attend a three-hour training that includes the following:

  • Overview of history, laws, and policies affecting undocumented students

  • Review of statistics on the undocumented student population

  • Provide information about resources for undocumented students on campus

  • Reveal the lived experiences of undocumented students

  • Discuss and practice what it means to be an ally to undocumented students

  • Opportunity to connect with other SMC community members to share ideas on supporting undocumented students
