Pennsylvania Defends DACA
DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a vital protection for young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and are working to make better lives for their families. DACA provides desperately needed work authorization and relief from the fear of deportation. The Trump Administration’s decision to end of DACA is a terrible blow to our communities.
We stand united against canceling DACA and all other white supremacist attacks. There are 800,000 DREAMers–21,000 in Pennsylvania alone–that we as Americans will protect.
We now hold Congress accountable. We demand that Congress do right by DREAMers and immigrant families, and work to immediately pass a lasting solution that puts a path forward to legalization. Call 202-804-8050 to tell your member of Congress to support the DREAM ACT, and join DACA actions all over Pennsylvania.

It has allowed nearly a million young people across the country to emerge from the shadows and seek a better future and pursue the elusive American Dream. Revoking DACA would slam the door shut on that future.read more
One Pennsylvania bears witness to emboldened white supremacists, and we reject it. We resist and renounce their hatred, and we condemn President Donald Trump’s failure to publicly renounce white supremacy and Nazism. We do not believe, as President Trump stated, that there are ‘many sides’ to racism, hatred, and anti-Semitism. All are unequivocally wrong.read more
