Today we’re joining the @UnitedNations International #MigrantsDay conversation by highlighting a #BezosScholar student and educator team who choose to focus their Local Ideas Festival (LIF) on issues related to and the comprehensive reform of immigration in the United States. The UN’s Migrants Day aims to showcase, strengthen, and enhance mechanisms to protect people on the move, in hopes of creating dialogue within regions, and more broadly, countries, as well as promoting exchange of experience and opportunities for collaboration.

In 2012, Bezos Scholar Dory MacMillan and her educator, Ryan Findley, hosted DREAM Fest to advocate for immigration reform and to rally support for their undocumented peers, joining the growing trend of advocacy and activism on these issues in Athens, Georgia.

DREAM Fest featured a day of powerful speakers, including the director of Georgia's ACLU, Azadeh Shahshahani, Georgia's first Latino state representative, Pedro Marin, Freedom University teachers and students; high--profile immigration lawyers; representatives of a recently formed UGA student immigrant solidarity group - Undocumented Student Alliance, and leaders from related community groups in Athens, such as the Athens Latino Center for Education and Services. In addition to this incredible group of speakers, DREAM Fest also facilitated a concert at a local café featuring area singer-songwriters, a local rapper, and Incatepec, a Latin-jazz band.

In an online article for the Athens Banner-Herald, Dory shares, “education is a human right, and one that I have received, in part, by the good fortune of my birth place. My smart and ambitious peers, both documented and undocumented, will continue to support each other in our collective quest to succeed. Our country will be the better for it.” .

On @UnitedNations International #MigrantsDay we’re highlighting 2017 #BezosScholar Sammie Casas and her Local Ideas Festival (LIF) @WeFightFear Immigration Conference.
With her educator Ann Marano, Sammie promoted maintaining Dallas’s sanctuary city status by educating and creating an advocacy platform for young immigrants of all documentation statuses. The LIF team visited Washington D.C. to talk to Senators and Congressmen about immigration reform. During the one-day We Fight Fear Immigration Conference youth were able to attend informational seminars on topics such as applying for college, the future of DACA, and SB4 (a bill that would outlaw sanctuary cities and require that the local police to work with immigration and customs enforcement) meant for Texas.
Click the link in bio to learn what the We Fight Fear team is up to for it's second year. .

To close out @UnitedNations #VolunteerDay we’re sharing how 2010 #BezosScholar Paul Elish focused his Local Ideas Festivals (LIF) on mobilizing his community to volunteer, advocate, and give back.

Paul and his educator, Jennifer Bourassa, created the Community Service Initiative (CSI) student group to encourage student service with the intent of improving their school, Presque Isle High School (PIHS), and the greater community. Throughout the year, CSI facilitated several service initiatives that established strong connections between community organizations and students.

First, the CSI group worked with school district administration to institute a paper-recycling program at the high school.
The next CSI initiative was the Rice Bowl. The Rice Bowl supported the United Nations’ World Food Program (WFP). Next, CSI took on the @StudentsRebuild Origami Cranes challenge, which was in response to the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
The final and largest CSI initiative was Teen Night at the Library. Community members were encouraged to visit the library to read, play games, share food, create arts and crafts, explore the library technology offerings, experience the photo gallery, and partake in a writing workshop hosted by New Brunswick author, Wendy Koenig. Thanks to the popularity of Teen Night, the library expanded on existing teen after-hour events and became a Safe Place for vulnerable teens.
Paul shares, “We took ideas for initiatives from students and faculty to ensure service was always a subject of discussion through our school. This not only helped CSI be a vehicle for serving the community, but also encouraged a culture of service within the high school.” .

In honor of the @UnitedNations #VolunteerDay, we’re sharing how 2009 #BezosScholar Valerie Shen focused her Local Ideas Festival (LIF) on mobilizing her community through volunteerism, advocacy, and giving back.

Valerie and her educator, Troy Arneson, hosted a program designed to promote volunteerism in the community. More than 200 high school students attended the LIF, which opened with a film made by @globalnomadsgroup on Ana Dodson’s work to help Peruvian orphans. Students also heard about regional volunteer opportunities from Nicholas Wagner of the United Way, and Denny Roark of the University of Wisconsin’s HELP System on how volunteerism can be helpful during the college application process.

Valerie shares, “our primary purpose was for everyone to understand the wealth of volunteer opportunities they can get involved in in the community.” As a result of Lend A Hand, more students signed up for the school-wide Spirit Day volunteer event, held annually at James Madison Memorial High School. An art piece showcasing student volunteer projects was created with the support of student government. .
