Although we can't be there to support the vigils being held across the country for the DREAM Act Day of Action organized by the National Council of La Raza today, we wanted to be sure that you have all the information you need to know about this key bill. The DREAM Act is a crucial piece of legislation for our young people; it would open a path for students and youth who were brought here before they could have been aware of their immigration status to become full-fledged, contributing members of society by allowing them to go to college and serve in the military.

To learn more, click through the stories we have written over the last few months on the DREAM Act and if you can, participate in a vigil or call (866) 529-7628 and tell your senators and your representative to vote YES on the DREAM Act!

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
