Keep the Dream Alive: Standing in Solidarity with DACA Dreamers

The Trump Administration’s decision to repeal DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) places nearly a million of our friends, neighbors, and relatives who arrived here as children in jeopardy. Please join us to stand in solidarity with those threatened and to tell our members of Congress that we demand a humane immigration policy.

Join us, in coordination with Mountaineers for Progress, WVACLU, and various WVU student organizations, in solidarity at 5:30pm at the Mountainlair as community members make their voices heard. Anyone who feels passionate about this issue who would like to speak is welcome to as well. Contact Ian Kilwein (iankilwein@gmail.com), Nathan Tauger (nvtauger@gmail.com) or Megan Smith (mountaineersforprogress@gmail.com) if you would like to speak.

As West Virginians, we need to show up. Our Congressional Representatives were some of the most vocal in their opposition to DACA. For a summary of our legislators’ stances please see the following link:
