BENEFITING: NEW YORK STATE YOUTH LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
EVENT DATE: Sep 16, 2012
The Dream Bus Project is seeking funds to purchase a biodiesel bus to travel across the country to educate communities on the need to pass the Dream Act. The bus will be used to transport expert DreamActivist into communities to offer YES organizing trainings and offer educational workshops. Additionally, the Dream Bus will help youth/student activist connect across communities.
The Dream Act is a bi-partisan legislation that would create a path to legalization for 1.4 million undocumented youth and children. First introduced in 2001, the federal DREAM Act has failed to pass. Each year over 65,000 undocumented youth graduate from U.S high schools
The Dream Bus is a project of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance and DreamActivist.org
