DREAMers Descend on Capitol Hill to Demand a Clean DREAM Act

On November 9th, Dreamers and their allies took part in an inspiring action calling on Congress to pass a Clean DREAM Act to protect the 800,000 young immigrants impacted by Trump's repeal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In Washington, DC, student walk-outs culminated in a powerful occupation of Congress, including banner drops, civil disobedience, and a march and rally around Capitol Hill. There were also student walk-outs and solidarity actions around the country. A number of CPD partners participated in these actions in DC and around the country. Watch this video for highlights!
