Dream ACTion Week at UCLA

In NEWSPRINT on April 28, 2009 at 1:06 pm

This week is Dream ACTion Week at UCLA, an educational event that seeks to educate and gather support for the Federal DREAM Act. If passed, the Federal DREAM or Development, Relief, and Education Alien Minors Act will grant citizenship to undocumented high school graduates after completion of a college degree or minimum of two years in the armed forces. Learn more about the DREAM Act and the Alliance of DREAMS, the organization holding the event, here.

Yesterday, I caught a glimpse of the “No Identity Silent Action” in front of the Kerchkoff Steps. Students wearing white face masks held signs in support of passing the DREAM Act and tried to gather petition signatures. I’m not a great photographer, but here are some photos I caught:

  1. I love that students can get together and support an issue that is pertinent to their fellow students even though they may not be affected directly. It is inspiring how students can support each other and act for change.
    The DREAM Act is an important piece of legislation that should pass! I love what Alliance of DREAMS at UCLA is doing.
