Organizing for Action

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) provides hope, opportunity, and protection for immigrant youth. Thanks to DACA, kids who have always known this country as their home can live, work, and go to school without the fear of deportation or being separated from their families.

But the administration is considering ending DACA, sowing fear and uncertainty for these young people who are American in every way but on paper. DACA recipients make huge contributions to our country -- they are becoming teachers, joining our armed forces, and strengthening our economy. Turning our backs on these youth is misguided, cruel, and violates our core values as Americans. We must stand up to defend DACA and the nearly 800,000 recipients who benefit from the program.

Tomorrow, August 15th, OFA is joining forces with United We Dream to protect DACA and immigrant youth. Check out the details and say you'll attend:

What: Defend DACA Day of Action

Where: 725 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10022

When: Tuesday, August 15ᵗʰ
