Mon Feb 22 2010 (Updated 02/26/10) DREAM Act: A Pathway to Legalization for Undocumented Students
DREAM Week of Action Kicks Off A National DREAM Week of Action kicked off on February 22nd and will last until Friday, February 26th. Students across California and 16 other states are organizing in support of the DREAM Act, a piece of federal legislation that would provide a pathway to legalization for undocumented students educated in the U.S.

Every year, 65,000 undocumented students graduate from U.S. high schools, but these students face serious barriers to higher education. First, they are not eligible to receive any state or federal financial aid; this includes work-study and student loans. Basically, these students and their families have to pay dollar-for-dollar what it costs to attend an institution of higher learning.

Students at UC Santa Cruz have organized a Teach-In for Wednesday at 7pm in Oakes Room 105, as well as short films, pan dulce and drinks on Friday at 12pm in the Cervantes/Velasquez Conference Room. imc_photo.gifRead more and view photos
