Subject: UCSB IDEAS Conference

To whom it may concern, 
My name is Abril Carrasco and I am currently Outreach Chair for I.D.E.A.S. (Improving Dreams Equality Access and Success). We are an organization at UCSB that strives for the improvement of the opportunities that are given to students who identify as undocumented, AB 540 or Dreamers. We would like to invite students to come to our annual IDEAS Conference which will be held on campus on February 16, 2013.
UCSB IDEAS Conference is a full day experience, at no cost and with free transportation, filled with different workshops that will help Dreamer students on the road to success. We invite students to take upon this great opportunity and explore their options for college.
We will provide tools for being successful in college, how to pay for college and scholarship opportunities. Students will also have the opportunity to interact with other Dreamer students who are currently assisting institutions of higher education.
We acknowledge the need that exists within our community to expose our Dreamers to opportunities that otherwise they would not be exposed to. It is imperative that students who identify as undocumented, AB 540 or Dreamer know that the path to higher education is now more accessible to them.
We would like to ask your permission to make presentation(s) on your campus as you best see suitable. Whether it be during a class, lunch, or a meeting with the students that you believe would benefit more from our conference. Please let us know if these meetings can be scheduled.
Hoping to hear from you soon,

Abril Carrasco
