The DREAM Act movement is at an exciting and urgent time. We have been
waiting too long. We have been denied an education and it is now time to
take matters to our own hands. This is the land of the American Dream. We
are supposed to fight, we are supposed to work hard, and we will continue to
do so until we succeed. We need school, we need an education.
If they are not going to let us be educated, we will do it on our own. We
built our own university, our DREAM University (www.dreamuniversity2010.org
).

DREAM University opened in front of the White House on Wednesday July 14th.
More than five hundred undocumented students from California, Texas,
Arizona, Illinois, Kansas, Wisconsin, New York and Maine are coming to learn
together and to fight for the DREAM Act. More than 40 students from
Massachusetts went to DC last week. 21 undocumented students were arrested
for doing civil obedience--sitting in the offices of our Senators and
demanding the DREAM Act now. DREAMers continue to meet and build our
movement steps away from the White House. Students are lobbying our
Senators, learning our American histories, and even dancing the Cha-Cha
Slide in front of the White House. This is the time and there is urgency
burning in all of us-- The DREAM Act needs to be passed this year!
