Undocumented & Unafraid: The Courage of DREAMers

Meet some courageous DREAMers (and support their cause):
  • Dayanna Rebolledo
  • David Ramirez
  • Andrea Rosales
  • Viridiana Martinez
  • Jose Rico Benavides
  • Georgina Perez
  • Maria Marroquin
  • Dulce Guerrero

On April 5th, these eight DREAMers from different parts of the U.S., with courage and determination, showed us what it means to fight for what you believe in, no matter what the consequences may be.

As a way of protesting Georgia's new law that bans undocumented students from attending any public college or university, these leaders and their supporters organized a rally and later a sit-in to block traffic and bring attention to their demands that higher education should be accessible to all students, regardless of immigration status.

As a result of their actions, seven of the DREAMers were arrested and are currently being held in jail on $2,000 bond.

They were courageous enough to fight for all of our rights to access an education. Now it's time to fight with them.

Sign the petition to tell the presidents of Georgia State University and the four other public universities to refuse the ban on undocumented students.

UPDATE: All students were released from jail yesterday afternoon. Great news, but our fight continues. Stay in this struggle together and learn from the courage of these and so many DREAMers.
