Woodson Martin Immigration & Democracy Initiative

Through our Woodson Martin Democracy Fellow, and two undergraduate fellows, this work is dedicated to advancing the common good within themes related to immigration and refugee work. We educate the campus and broader Harrisonburg/Rockingham communities on immigration issues, help remove barriers to deeper democratic engagement, and collaborate with the local immigrant and refugee communities on civic learning and democratic engagement opportunities.
