Laura Emiko Soltis: Conspiring for Social Justice
A self-described "co-conspirator in social justice," Dr. Laura Emiko Soltis empowers undocumented students in the U.S. to breakdown the many barriers they face to higher education. She runs Freedom University, and advocates to change university admissions policies. She is based in Georgia, one of only three states that bans undocumented students' access to public higher ed.
Laura also shares her reflections on the experience of being one of 20 innovators selected to participate in the 2016 Ashoka American Express Emerging Innovators Bootcamp in New York City.
