In Oakland we rallied on September 9, 2011, the first day California Governor Jerry Brown has to sign the California Dream Act, AB 131, which would grant undocumented immigrant students an equal right to state financial aid. It was very spirited with high school, middle school, and college students, and we circulated the petition. We got huge support from drivers and passersby!
Jerry Brown has until October 9 to make his decision. We need to continue building the civil rights/immigrant rights movement to win. If you haven’t yet already signed and circulated the Dream Act petition, Sign the Dream Act Petition now. We are faxing all signatures to the Governor!
