"Protect Dreamers" week begins Oct. 16

Oct 17, 2017

Last week, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) issued an advocacy update regarding the rescission of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. The immigration advocacy groups that support Dreamers and DACA registrants have designated the week of Oct. 16 as Protect Dreamers Higher Education Theme Week

NAICU has joined the American Council on Education (ACE), and several other higher education associations, have put together a website, The Protect Dreamers Higher Education Coalition website with a number of resources that campuses can use to participate in DACA advocacy events during the week. NAICU is encouraging campus leaders, faculty, staff and students to contact Members of Congress and engage in advocacy activities that week, and beyond, that highlight the accomplishments and contributions of Dreamers on college and university campuses.
