As many are aware, on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019,  the Athens-Clarke County Mayor & Commission unanimously passed a Resolution in Support of Athens Immigrant, Undocumented, and Latinx Communities, brought forward by Commissioner Tim Denson.  The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute at the University of Georgia fully supports this resolution and reaffirms its commitment to diversity and inclusion.  The full video of the proceedings, and text of the full resolution in English and Spanish, can be found here.
