We are students and teachers. Children and parents.

We are Oregonians. We are Americans. We are the Oregon DACA Coalition.


Our mission is organize Dreamers and Allies across Oregon to create a more inclusive, equitable and connected community by raising awareness about the undocumented experience, and by participating in advocacy and direct action.

Due to President Trump rescinding the DACA program, our DACA Scholarship Fund is no longer available. However, with the generous support of people like you, ODC issued scholarships to over 70 Oregonians this year, helping to extend legal protection two years for each recipient.


Now that DACA has ended, we must demand that Congress pass a Clean Dream Act! The Oregon DACA Coalition is asking all of its members and allies to spread the word, call their Congressperson and tell their representatives to pass a Clean Dream Act by the end of the year!

Who We Are:

We are all volunteers fighting for the rights of ourselves, our friends, families, neighbors and undocumented people across the state.
The Oregon DACA Coalition was formed on November 9th, 2016 to advocate for Dreamers and defend immigrant families from the racists, anti-immigrant attacks spearheaded by the newly elected President and other right-wing extremists.
We are a grassroot organization made up of DACA recipients, documented and undocumented immigrants, and their allies.

 


What is DACA?
The Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was formed through executive order by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows certain people (Dreamers) who were brought to the U.S. unlawfully as minors to be protected from immediate deportation. Recipients are able to request “consideration of deferred action”. The DACA program has been heralded for bringing young undocumented immigrants out of the shadows, allowing them to attend colleges and universities, obtain driver licenses, provide for themselves, their families and future while being positive and productive members of society.
On September 5th, President Trump ended the DACA program for future applicants. Current DACA Recipients will remain under DACA status until their expiration date.


What We Do:
We engage the local community to take direct action to advocate for Dreamers and the immigrant community. Some of the things we have accomplished:

And we are continuing the fight, now more than ever, to pass a Clean Dream Act and provide a path to citizenship for those who are being told to go back into the shadows.
