Taking Back Our American Dream

Enough Political Games: Protect Immigrant Youth Now

DENVER, CO– With the Trump mandated deadline to end DACA rapidly approaching, March 5 is the day that we say Enough is Enough. We will tell Trump and Congress that immigrant youth are not political pawns, they are human beings and we are coming together to defend them and their families from this Administration’s deportation force.

Today, more than 20,000 immigrant youth have already lost their jobs and protections because of President Trump's decision to end DACA. Even with the recent court decisions that will allow those with DACA to renew, after March 5th, over a thousand will still begin losing protections every day. We are coming together to demand that Congress pass a clean DREAM Act to protect immigrant youth without hurting our families or building walls. Together, we seek to stop this unnecessary, Trump-made humanitarian crisis

Community leaders and members will be vowing to take back their dreams and make positive change by building an electorate that is reflective of the values that Colorado upholds through voter registration and community organizing.  

Together Colorado, as a member of the PICO National Network and LA RED program, is fed up by a lack of congressional action on the impending end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and the administration’s hostile treatment of undocumented communities. Our organization's support of this local press conference and theatre action is aligned with  a series of mass public actions to reveal the crisis happening in immigrant communities across the country. The actions will be held March 5 through 8 in California, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, Indiana, Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts.

 Visuals: Energized community, signs, theatrical representation of members of congress, president Trump, and ICE agents, and directly impacted speakers.
