The Maryland DREAM Youth Committee (MDYC) is an immigrant youth led organization started in July 2010. We are creating a place for undocumented youth to become empowered to push for educational opportunities and fight for a pathway to their goals. We will accomplish this by building a strong presence that can gain support from communities around the state and by working with our political leaders. Our vision is to reach out to schools and communities around Maryland to organize and mobilize for immigrant rights for ALL.
What Have We Done So Far?
We have supported and lead efforts to pass the federal DREAM Act, fought for access to in-state tuition for undocumented youth, stopped the deportation of DREAM Act eligible youth, and pushed the Obama Administration to grant relief to DREAMers through Deferred Action. Lastly, we are very proud of our role in the 2012 Maryland DREAM Act campaign, which is now law of MD !
We are accomplishing all this through trainings, retreats, and conferences for youth leaders in Maryland. We have joined national actions in Washington DC and participated in national & regional convenings to plan out the strategies for the DREAM Movement and currently we are pushing for Administrative Relief in 2014.
