Help pass the DREAM Act now!

Hey Dems – Now is the time to pass the DREAM Act and make sure all of our peers have the same opportunities in the land of opportunity. Here are two things you can do:

1) Submit a photo of yourself and a short (1 sentence or so) statement about why you support the DREAM Act to HarvardDemsDream@gmail.com to be included in our DREAM Act poster campaign.

2) Take action with our friends from Act on a DREAM:

For almost 10 years Congress has failed to address an issue which affects the lives of hundreds of thousands of young Americans.

After an entire decade without action on behalf of Congress, a discussion on “the merits of undocumented youth” remains nothing more than a futile exercise in bigotry. Together as Republicans, Democrats and Independents, college students from every state demand the passage of the DREAM Act immediately.

Act on a DREAM asks all college students to contact the following Senators, asking them to vote in favor of DREAM before the end of this legislative year.

It’s now or never. The chances for any immigration reform are slim after this election cycle. Our peers cannot wait while politicians play with this serious humanitarian crisis in America.
