The Emerson Collective:
The Dream Act

Nearly 2 million people will be affected by this decision. That's 1 in 20 people.

As the child of immigrant parents and the grandchild of a refugee, I realize how lucky I am to have citizenship. I can't imagine being told that I have to go back to a country where I can't read or write, or worse, being jailed for trying to stay in what I have always known to be my home. This is the reality many Dreamers are facing if the Dream Act is repealed. If you want to learn more, I highly encourage visiting the Emerson website. If you want to do more, I encourage you to call your representative. It makes a huge difference to the 2 million people wondering whether or not they'll be able to remain home after the holidays.
