Young People Leading Protection of Dream Act

Teen Vogue is highlighting the role young people are taking in passing a clean DREAM Act:

In response, young people across the country are demanding that Congress pass a clean Dream Act — one that does not sacrifice their families and communities.

The DREAM act is inherently youth focused - it's all about protecting protecting the residency and rights of minor immigrants - and thus will most likely require young people to protect it. Without their experiences informing this policy, and without their direct hand in crafting the policy, how will they be adequately protected?

That's why media like Teen Vogue sharing these stories and covering the real, and important, work young people are doing across the country to protect each other. Check it out.
