Campaign for an American DREAM!
EACH YEAR, hundreds of thousands of people are being deported and thousands of families are being separated. The system is clearly broken. The nation has waited patiently for change, but all our communities can see is more suffering. Our elected officials tell us we must wait, “wait patiently for immigration reform.” Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security is not waiting patiently to separate us from our families and we have seen the greatest number of deportations in history. WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT JUST SIT BACK AND WAIT! On January 3rd, 2012, a small team of brave, passionate students will embark on a 3,000 mile journey across the country, from San Francisco, CA all the way to Washington, D.C. creating needed dialogue around the unspoken causes of immigration and the reality of abuses that take place due to the broken system. The communities and students will share their stories, and together will raise up the many voices across our country that are concerned with the humane treatment of people and the values we hold dear as a nation as together we push for fairer reform.
