Dream Center students and allies,
The reality is that DACAmented and undocumented students cannot vote. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have a voice. Many of out students have been working passionately to inform their friends, family and community about issues surrounding their status and their right to live and study here. “Have you voted,” they ask, and provide information such as telling people where they can vote. Suppose they need a ride, what numbers to call for information and other relevant items so that those who have the right to vote, do. Despite many threats to undocumented students and their families’ futures, our students remain civically engaged and hopeful for a good outcome that ensures steps toward protected status in this country.
According to the news and polls, we expect that there will be record numbers of voter turnout this year. We imagine many things will change in the next four years. The Dream Center supports all of those students who can vote and those who cannot to continue being active in the fight for rights and education. Regardless of this election’s outcome, we are here to support. We are here to listen. We are here to stay.
