Give DREAMers the Gift of Education

by Van Le on 12/17/2012 at 1:30pm

DREAMers led our movement in winning our biggest victory in 25 years—protecting over a million young people from deportation with the deferred action policy!  In this holiday season, America’s Voice Education Fund wants to say thank you to these inspiring leaders.

Will you contribute $5 to thank a DREAMer by helping her go to college and pursue her dreams?

An innovative program called “DREAM Summer” offers DREAMers a summer-long internship at a social justice organization, advanced leadership training and a $5,000 stipend that they can use for college tuition.

Every penny of your tax-deductible gift will go directly to a DREAMer.  It’s the perfect way to say thank you to DREAM leaders who have dedicated everything they have (most often working as unpaid volunteers because of their immigration status) to our movement for change.

Over one thousand students from across the country applied to DREAM Summer last year for just 150 spots. We want to help four more students take part this year.

We want to raise $20,000 by December 31st to allow four more students to participate in this one-of-a-kind program.  Will you join us by donating $5?

Deferred action in hand, DREAMers are poised to become the next generation of professional movement leaders.  Your investment will help them begin careers in social justice which will pay dividends to all of us for years to come.

P.S. Remember, your holiday gift to DREAMers is entirely tax-deductible.Please contribute for yourself or on behalf of someone you love today.
