Generative Dialogue on Homelessness
May 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm BST
5pm London, 9am Los Angeles, 12pm New York, 6pm Paris, 12am Beijing
Dulce Garcia grew up in a predominantly Mexican and Mexican-American community in the USA. She is undocumented and found it impossible to find financial aid for college. So, she attended college at night and on weekends while working as a paralegal along with other jobs in order to pay her way through school. She has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a law degree with a concentration in Civil Litigation. When Dulce opened her private practice in 2016, she provided over 100 free consultations and over 20 Know Your Rights workshops to inform community members of their rights. She also volunteers to represent low income clients in court in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate and various non profit organizations. In 2017 Dulce and other DACA recipients formed San Diego Border Dreamers to advocate for more humane immigration laws and policies. Dulce also sued Trump and the administration after the termination of DACA on September 2017. As a result of those efforts in court, hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients are able to renew their DACA status while the case is in litigation. Dulce was in the Supreme Court on November 12, 2019 defending DACA.
About the Generative Dialogue Series on Homelessness
In January 2021, the Academy of Professional Dialogue began a series of monthly Generative Dialogues for Members and their guests to develop themes that emerged during the October 2020 International Conference The World Needs Dialogue! 3.
Rebecca Cannara, Bobby Frazier, Jane Ball and Bernhard Holtrop took the initiative to lead a series of generative dialogues around the theme of homelessness.
We primarily strive to bring together people with personal and professional experience in the field, to meet each other as equals in dialogue. The goal is to create a safe setting, in which people can share their own experiences and generate insights about the whole system – creating a connection from the heart between participants and enabling understanding and healing on a deeper level.
