CICERO, Ill. – State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, will host her annual “College for Everyone” resource fair on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Morton College’s Building C, located at 3801 S. Central Ave. in Cicero.
“My annual College for Everyone resource fair is my favorite event of the year because it provides parents and students the opportunity to learn about all of the resources available in the community to make college more accessible,” said Hernandez. “And as a result of Donald Trump’s shameful plan to end DACA, I’m looking forward to having representatives on-hand to help our young people with DACA renewals and answer any questions they may have.”
Participants at this year’s “College for Everyone” event will include representatives from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, the Attorney General’s office, the Comptroller’s office, the Secretary of State’s office, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and the Mexican Consulate. The aim of the event is to provide parents and students with information about resources available to help them pursue a college degree. The event will feature a financial aid (FAFSA) presentation, information about renewing driver’s licenses and a discussion about Hernandez’s efforts to expand financial aid eligibility.
Additionally, due to current developments with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, residents will be able to receive assistance with renewing their DACA paperwork. However, an RSVP for DACA renewals is required. To register for DACA renewals and for more information, residents can call Hernandez’s full-time constituent service office at (708) 222-5240.
