Background:

The LIBRE Initiative has called on bipartisan congressional leaders to take action on a permanent solution that would provide certainty for Dreamers, who were brought to the United States as children and face an uncertain future.

 

Our Dreamer campaign includes Capitol Hill advocacy and grassroots mobilization. The LIBRE Initiative has already hosted numerous immigration town halls and grassroots events across the nation to inform and active the community in favor of DACA solution.

 

This campaign seeks to break the partisan gridlock and challenge lawmakers in both parties to come together.
