Online Voter Pledge: I pledge to keep dreams alive

For more then 10 years DREAMers, advocates, political leaders, and countless individuals have work to ensure all students in Maryland have access to higher education regardless of where they were born. Last year Governor O'Malley signed Senate Bill 167 or the MD DREAM Act into law. The law would allow any student who graduated from a Maryland High School, whose family have paid their taxes, and is ready to enter college access to the same tuition rate as all their peers.

The dreams of so many youth in Maryland have been put on hold from a effort cut down the law before it has even started. The MD DREAM Act has been put to a referendum where MD voters will decide who can have access to education and a chance to pursue their dreams.

You can make the difference. We need you to pledge to vote to support DREAMers in Maryland who have overcome so many obstacles put in their path because they lack the proper documents. Fill out the simple form below below to make your pledge.

We need your pledge to keep dreams alive!
