DREAM Act Action Day in D.C

November 16, 2017

Last week, Mariana Garcia Medina, our newest staff member and a DACA recipient, traveled to Washington, DC to lobby members of Congress to pass a DREAM Act.

Mariana joined hundreds of other Dreamers from across the country at the event, hosted by non-profit United We Dream. United We Dream is an immigrant youth organization that helps DACA recipients navigate the citizenship process and advocates for youth immigrants.

Mariana shared her personal story and asked our elected officials to help Dreamers keep their work permits and protection from deportation.

You can read Nick’s statement on President Trump’s decision to rescind DACA here.
