Nearly 100 students participated in a press conference where students shared their stories and Professor Helen Giron from Metro State spoke to students about the importance of continuing to struggle for students rights at a DREAM University Rally Sept. 2nd. Professor Giron specifically reminded students that they are carrying the torch for all civil rights movements of the 1960/70s.

A representative from Senator Bennet’s office was also present to demonstrate Senator Bennet’s support for the DREAM Act as co-sponsor fo the amendment. The intent of the press conference was to ask Sen. Bennet and Sen. Udall, who was unrepresented at the event, to co-write a letter of support to senator Reid (D-NV) urging him to introduce the DREAM act before the year is over. After the press conference students marched to 16th and Stout to raise awareness about the DREAM Act.
