Help Texas DREAMers Keep In-State Tuition

From University Leadership Initiative

Help Us Preserve In-State Tuition 
Deadline is Tomorrow: Friday, November 18, 2011
The law permitting certain immigrant students who are long term residents of the state to qualify for in-state tuition in Texas has received a lot of national attention since Governor Perry announced he was running for the President. As you know, most of this attention was negative. Many elected officials in Texas have already announced they will file bills to repeal this legislation next session.

We cannot sit around idly while our opposition destroys good public policy that has benefitted students and Texas. Instead, we are launching a campaign to mobilize all of the supporters of this legislation, and particularly those who are registered to vote.

If you are a registered voter in Texas who is not voting in the Republican Primary, please sign the petition to add a proposition supporting in-state tuition and the DREAM Act to the Democratic Party primary ballot. 
You can download the petition here. Once you and your family and friends complete all blanks, please fax to 512-480-2500 or email to Or you can mail it to ULI at 
3106 Duval St. #310
Austin, TX, 78705. 
We are trying to reach 35,000 signatures state-wide, 
so each signature counts. 
Our DEADLINE is Friday, November 18, 2011

Thank you for your continued support, 

University Leadership Initiative

NOTE: We are a non-partisan organization. However, we feel that this petition would best allow us to demonstrate that this legislation has broad support amongst United States citizens who are registered voters.
