Dream Act

On May 17, immigrant youth, along with allies across the country, will issue a “Declaration of DREAMS.”

The Declaration outlines several rights for undocumented youth, including the right to live with dignity in the country they call home, the right to live with their families, and the right to education.

There are many ways to join in on May 17:

  • Organize an event. Are there members of your community facing deportation? Highlight their stories in a local press conference or other type of event. (Register your event here and UWD can provide an organizing tool kit and media support.)
  • Attend an event. Check the UWD map to find event locations.
  • Submit an op-ed to your local newspaper, telling the story of one or more DREAMers in your community and highlighting the Declaration of Dreams.
  • Sign on to the Declaration of Dreams and share it on Twitter, Facebook, etc.

On May 17, immigrant youth, along with allies across the country, will issue our declaration of DREAMS. Through the Right to Dream campaign, we’re launching a nationwide call to President Obama for real and lasting relief for DREAMers and our communities.

  1. The Sisters of St. Louis support the Declaration of Dreams and will let others know we do.
