The UCLA Labor Center, MALDEF, and IDEAS at UCLA present:
Campus Community Hearing: The DREAM Act
The DREAM Act, a bill that would create a path to legalization for nearly 2.5 million young immigrants who have grown up in the United States, is expected to be reintroduced later this month.
Its passage would be a much needed first step towards better immigration policies in our nation.
Community leaders will be present to hear student testimonies and provide their strategies for action and mobilization on this important civil rights issue.
Potential DREAM Act beneficiaries will talk about their backgrounds and aspirations, and about their families’ dire need for just and humane immigration reform.
Come hear and learn how you can also be one of thousands committing to take action for immigrant rights!
