I hope this message finds you well. Below are some updates regarding our collective support of immigrant and refugee students:

  • Safe School Posters
    • We made more copies in both English and Spanish
    • We have copies available in multiple languages
    • Please email me if you would like any more posters; we will send them to you through interoffice mail
  • Know Your Rights Toolkits (for students and families). These are meant for students and families who ask about what their rights are if a particular situation occurs with law enforcement. 
    • Attached are the toolkits in multiple languages. We are still working on Pashto and Swahili. 
    • Below are links to El Centro’s toolkits in English and Spanish

  • Dream Zone Trainings (for a small number of your staff) These are meant for those schools who wish to establish a Dream Zone, similar to a Safe Zone. The Dream Zone would have sponsors, who are staff you identify at your school, and they would attend one of the following trainings to learn how to best support undocumented students and the challenges they face:
    • Wednesday, April 26, from 9am-3pm for elementary and middle schools. Place TBD.
    • Friday, April 28, from 9am-3pm for high schools. Place TBD. 
    • My office will pay for subs.
    • There is no cost for your school for these trainings.
    • So far we have about a dozen schools who have signed up for these trainings, but it’s not too late! Just email me if you would like to send some staff to a training ASAP. 
  • Know Your Rights Workshops (for families). These are meant for parents and families who would like a more in-depth, interactive, participatory workshop to learn about their rights and what best to do regarding their immigration status. 
    • El Centro is providing these workshops by request. 
    • To request this workshop for your school, use the following link:

Taller de Derechos Civiles- Civil Rights Workshop



Thank you for all of your work and commitment to meet the needs of all of our students, especially the most vulnerable. Please let me know if you have any questions.

My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance) in cooperation with Gathering of Nations PowWow are thrilled to invite you to the MBK Alliance Youth Summit on April 27th. This event will be held from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. MDT at Warehouse 508 located at 508 1st Street NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102.

MBK Alliance is an independent, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) born out of President Obama’s call to action to ensure all of our nation’s boys and young men of color have equal opportunity to achieve their full potential. 

In its 34th year, the Gathering of Nations PowWow and Miss Indian World Pageant have grown to be one of the world’s most recognized annual festivals celebrating Native culture. This year, MBK Alliance is excited to hold their Youth Summit during this important season.

The jointly held Summit will provide a space for Native youth to convene and connect around promising solutions. Designed for young men between the ages of 16-25, the Summit integrates cultural pride and empowerment and builds on what is working for young people residing in Indian Country. During the four-hour theme-based conversation, attendees will have the opportunity to dialogue with each other, while promoting and celebrating the importance of community engagement and civic leadership. 

We would appreciate if you would help us spread the word! Please share the attached flyer and the registration link below for Native youth to attend: Youth Summit Registration.

The first 100 registrants will receive a FREE ticket to attend the Gathering of Nations PowWow .

For more information, please contact Cecilia Gutierrez at 954-376-0036 or via e-mail at

Thank you in advance for your support.
