Stand with Dreamers

Friday, November 10 at 10 AM – 2 PM PST
Meet at Riverfront Park, Walking Bridge | Salem, Oregon

Join the Oregon DACA Coalition as we stand with our Dreamers and demand a Clean Dream Act!

This is the time to stand with our community and youth across the nation as we fight for a just and dignified life. We are occupying the street going out of Salem and going over the bridge in West Salem.

We have 1 month for Congress to act and pass a Clean Dream Act. Join our movement as we band together to march in order to show solidarity with our millions of undocumented youth that are being affected by the termination of DACA.

We will let our community know that we are here to stay and demand a Clean Dream Act now!

NOTE:

  • Bring your supportive signs such as: I am your social worker, I am your teacher, I am your banker, I am your student, I am your neighbor, I support a CLEAN Dream Act, I stand with Dreamers, etc.
