A workshop to present information to Latino students living in the United States illegally is planned for Cuesta College this month, according to a college news release.

On April 18 and 19, the Latina Leadership Network of Cuesta College will host an information session at its San Luis Obispo and North County campuses.

Dr. Richard Cortes, an academic and transfer counselor at Glendale Community College, will speak about the experiences of Latino community college students who are in the U.S. illegally, according to the news release.

He will include information about the proposed federal Dream Act designed to help people who were illegally brought to the United States as children become citizens if they attend college or serve in the military.

Financial aid information will also be presented.

The workshop is planned from 5 to 7 p.m. April 18 at the North County campus in Room N3102 and from 10 a.m. to noon April 19 at the San Luis Obispo campus in Room 6304.

This event is open to the public and co-sponsored by the Associated Students of Cuesta College.

Free parking will be provided on the North County campus in lots 10 and 11 and on the San Luis Obispo campus in lots 2 and 3, according to the news release.
