AB 540 is not really introduced in schools

Identity verification policies (e.g. background checks for internships) alienate AB 540 and undocumented students.

Political climate and community awareness on AB 540 and undocumented issues should be understood and acknowledged.

When asked questions about resources for AB 540 and undocumented students, ensure that the information is correct before giving information you are unsure about.
On your handout, write down:

What did you decide to do after finding out your family member was going to be deported?

Will you be sharing this with your friend?
