כִּֽי־גֵרִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם בְּאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם
for you were strangers in the land of Egypt
Teens and College Students: Hear the Call!
Protect the stranger. Love thy neighbor. Pass the Dream Act.
The Reform Jewish Movement is mobilizing to leverage the full strength of our community to work towards the passage of a clean Dream Act. Doing so will ensure greater protection for 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth (called DREAMers) who are at increased risk for deportation as the Trump administration dismantles the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Teens and college students have a unique role in this moment as many DREAMers are our friends, our fellow students, and our peers. Let our voices be heard!
Join with clergy, lay leaders, alumni and participants from NFTY, URJ Summer camps, Mitzvah Corps, and Reform congregations across the country and demand our representatives create a path to citizenship for thousands of undocumented youth with a clean Dream Act.
