About this Event
Imagine being a first generation student and feeling a deep sense of pride as graduation is coming to celebrate this milestone with friends, family, teachers, and mentors. Many schools had to make the tough decision of cancelling or postponing graduations and some are doing virtual engagements. As we kept hearing from our students about the longing of graduating we wanted to take a moment to celebrate their accomplishments in community, because there is always hope, even during a pandemic. We at Aliento believe it is important for students to have a space to celebrate their accomplishments and milestones with their loved ones and our community. We deeply understand that it takes a village and the Class of 2020 deserves to be celebrated!
Join us to celebrate the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of the Class of 2020 as we commemorate such a special time in a students’ academic journey at our virtual bilingual commencement ceremony!
This event is intended to celebrate high school graduates, community college graduates and university graduates. We want to highlight the diversity of stories of the class of 2020, especially children of immigrants, DACAmented students, undocumented students, students who come from mixed status families, first generation students, and the larger Aliento student community who have shown commitment to collective healing + transformative action!
