We Have a DREAM Summit - September 12, 2009

Recruiting Volunteers

The Houston community is in dire need of DREAM Act information. Several organizations and individuals created the Houston DREAM Act Coalition whose purpose is to advocate for the DREAM Act. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alian Minors (DREAM) Act is a bipartisan legislation that addresses the situation faced by young people who were brought to the United States years ago as undocumented immigrant children and who have since grown up here, stayed in school, and kept out of trouble.
We believe that our community deserves an event that will help our students and their parents better understand the purpose, benefit and requirements of the DREAM Act.

Our summit "We Have a DREAM" scheduled for September 12th, 8am - 12pm at the University of Houston Downtown is recruiting volunteers.
The "We Have a DREAM Summit" will include four different workshops:
  • “Journey to a DREAM”
  • “Ready, Set, Action!”
  • “DREAM Act & The Law”
  • “DREAM Act Economic Impact”
We will also have Congressional Representatives that will help us better understand Congress and how we can take action and help the DREAM Act pass.
We are in need of volunteers to help us make sure this event runs smoothly, if you can volunteer please click here to register online. For more information about volunteer duties/roles please visit our link at the Texas DREAM Act Alliance
