Tubbs Fire Recovery Oral Histories of Our Undocumented Community:

Local actors will be giving voice to the real stories of two undocumented immigrants living in Coffey Park at the time of the Tubbs fire, and how they experienced the recovery. The script is verbatim oral historical testimony as recorded by The Response Podcast team. Theri stories highlight central struggles of the immigrant community and how the work together to overcome prejudice and disaster.

The Response is a new podcast documentary series exploring the remarkable communities that arise in the aftermath of natural disasters. Spanning the globe, each episode takes a deep dive into a unique location to uncover the remarkable stories that are hidden just beneath the surface of extraordinary events.


Second Chance Club participation:

Visual and written art will be displayed in the lobby by memebres of the SRJC Second Chance club. 

Second Chance is both a student club and a student Services Program that provides support and resources for formerly incarcerated students. Regardless of how long you were inside, or where you have been in the justice system (prison, jail, juvenile hall, etc.), you will find a home on campus and a place of belonging in Second Chance.
