Thursday Feb. 15th, National Walk for a DREAM Act: Dreamers will walk under freezing temperatures, rain or shine for 250 miles from the World War I memorial in New York to the halls of congress in Washington D.C. to demand congress passes a DREAM Act and listens to the overwhelming majority of Americans who support a path to citizenship for Dreamers.
Northampton, Massachusetts — Eduardo Samaniego, a third year Hampshire College student, and leader with the Pioneer Valley Workers Center who would be qualify to apply for a path to citizenship under the DREAM Act bill will be part of the National Walk for a DREAM Act.
Eduardo will be carrying the stories of young immigrants from New England and join 10 other Dreamers from across the country for 15 days walk.
The urgency to pass a DREAM Act has never been stronger.
Today we are asking you to stand in solidarity with Eduardo as he makes his way down to D.C. in hopes that congress will listen.
