MPP Forum: 'Dreams Deferred: Access to Education for Immigrant Youth' with Marissa Molina (GCD)
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), a lifeline for hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth, faced unprecedented threats during the Trump Administration. Despite a challenging political landscape and the uncertainty of their own futures, DACA recipients faced the moment with resilience and determination. Come learn about how we organized and harnessed the power of our stories and communities to safeguard the DACA program and lead a historic movement for change.
