Erika Guadalupe Núñez '13, who graduated with a degree in fine arts from Haverford College, designed a poster that the community-led Latinx immigrant organization Juntos has distributed to help South Philadelphia residents know their rights should they be approached by local police or agents from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Her work was recently highlighted in a Philadelphia Inquirer article:
“It was really important to have something you put up in your window, so that when they’re at your door, and they might be banging on the door, that you’re reminded of your rights,” said Juntos Executive Director Erika Almiron. “It was important for community members to see these posters in the windows and know our neighbors and friends have committed to be our allies.”

Bryn Mawr and Haverford students take classes and some even major at each other’s campuses. This greatly expands the fields of study available to a student since some programs are available only on one campus (Music and Fine Arts at Haverford, Theater and Dance at Bryn Mawr, for example). But even programs that exist on both campuses may have different emphases or approaches. Learn more on our website.
