Dream Act Now Rally!

Date: 
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

When the president rescinded DACA, many people lost their chance to renew their status. More and more people will be coming under threat of deportation in the coming months. That's why we need to pass the #DreamActNow! At 12:00PM on Wednesday, immigrants and allies are gathering in Downtown Detroit to ask business leaders to join them in the campaign to pass the bipartisan 2017 Dream Act.
