This blueprint’s core focus is to bring local and statewide awareness of the undocumented experience, as well as to humanize undocumented individuals in the conservative climate of the State of Oklahoma. The climate of the state has made it very clear that being undocumented is seen as a criminal offense and less of a human rights issue. This project aims to take on this issue through conducting a series of teach-ins in combination with art showcases to provide a broad picture of the undocumented experience and a platform for those voices through different formats of knowledge sharing. It also aims to reach out to undocumented individuals without displacing them or placing them in danger to show there are resources for them to utilize in the Oklahoma area.
