Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
The “UndocuResource Day – Educators’ Summit” was created to bring together educators from high schools, colleges, and non-profits to provide training and resources in support of DACA and undocumented students across Colorado. The summit is free to attend and features workshops, a keynote address, lunch panel, and resource fair. MSU Denver and the Auraria campus is proud to host this important conference for the second time on November 10, 2023 on the Auraria campus.
Angelica Prisciliano (she/ella) was born in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua (Mexico) where she grew up before moving to southeast Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her family. She is the daughter and granddaughter of Tlaxcaltecas and Chilangos from the City of Mexico.
Angelica earned an Associate’s Degree from Community College of Denver and a Bachelor’s Degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Along other students on campus she founded Dreamers United, served in CCD’s student government, took officer positions for MSU Denver RISE, IGNITE: a movement of young women in politics, and completed the CLLARO Capitol Fellowship, Puksta Scholars Program, and the college student congress with the National Henry Clay Center.
Through her academic and community-led education, she found her dedication to advancing transformative public policy and social change through organizing and people power. Angelica also worked for 10 years in the food service and hospitality industry while investing in local and national immigrant justice work. While working as a server in Denver’s vibrant food industry, Angelica bared witness to workplace injustices and abuse such as long fast phased work hours, poverty wages, unfair scheduling, racism, sexual harassment, and abuse. This motivated her organizing and advocacy work to include building a Colorado where all workers are protected and can thrive. Angelica’s vision for our community holds access to green space and creative outlets, food and mobility justice, and environmental science-driven technologies.
