I just want to say that ACTS has been a true blessing! Even though I am not doing Youth Ministry within a church right now it has definitely helped me with my ministry in working with undocumented teens. Thank you Latino Leadership Circle for providing these resources. By the way if anyone is interested in finding out more about the DREAM Act CAMPAIGN, a campaign that strives to pass a legislation that would allow UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS to receive a higher education and a path to citizenship, check out our website at www.nysylc.org.
The DREAM Act: Helping Immigrant Youth Achieve Legal Status
Tuesday, March 27, 2007
New York City Bar Association Building
42 West 44th Street, New York, NY
(between 5th and 6th Avenues)
Speaking on what the DREAM Act could mean for you, NYC, and the country:
Guillermo Linares: Commissioner for the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs
Josh Bernstein: Director of Federal Policy, National Immigration Law Center
Claire Sylvan: Executive Director and founder of Internationals Network for Public Schools
Sandra: New York State Youth Leadership Council.
The DREAM Act is unprecedented legislation that provides a path to permanent residency and eventual citizenship for undocumented immigrant youth who have grown up in the United States and who complete two years of higher education or military service. The DREAM Act would acknowledge the contribution that hardworking immigrant students make to our country. With a new Congress and with strong bipartisan support, the DREAM Act could become reality this year.
