I had the pleasure of meeting Michele and heard first hand about this innovative program! The enthusiasm and expertise that she devotes to VIISTA is inspiring. For a lot of students who find themselves asking what they can do about the immigration crisis, Michele is offering a concrete solution that students and immigration activists can pursue. I especially applaud its holistic perspective that includes trauma-informed care. As a an undergraduate student at Villanova, I am proud that Villanova is advancing justice for immigrants through this program.
