Support Dreamers Solidarity Gathering
Over the past five years, DACA has provided 800,000 immigrant youth protection from deportation, the opportunity for higher education and jobs, and more stability to our communities.
Please join us in peaceful solidarity with Dreamers, DACA recipients, their families and the entire immigrant community in Petalma, Sonoma County and our nation. DACA recipients in particular are threatened by this weeks' racist wrecking ball from the White House, but these young people and their families are our neighbors, friends, classmates and coworkers. Let's unite in their defense! ¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido! The people united, will never be defeated!
"We can't let people drive wedges between us... because there's only one human race." -- Dolores Huerta
