“Dreamer Day” supports recipients of DACA Oct. 18


“Dreamer Day” supporting recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, will be held at Linn-Benton Community College from 12 to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18 in the college courtyard. 

The event will feature testimonials from students, alumni and community “Dreamers” on their experience with the DACA program, including successes and uncertainty over the fate of the program.

LBCC Our Revolution Club plans to hold a petition drive during the event, calling for congress to make DACA a permanent law.

"Dreamer Day" is sponsored by the LBCC Our Revolution club, LBCC Diversity Achievement Center, and LBCC Institutional Equity and Student Engagement. The event is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Robert Harrison at 541-917-4571 or harrisr@linnbenton.edu.
