NY Dream Act Week of Action ~ Feb 13-17

Every year thousands of undocumented youth graduate from New York high schools and face an uncertain future because of their immigration status. For years the federal government has failed our communities by refusing to pass the DREAM Act.

JOINS US for a whole week of action to raise awareness about the New York DREAM Act(NYDA), a bill that has been introduced in the legislature and would grant access to state financial aid for undocumented students. It’s time for New York State to act and pass the New York DREAM Act.
