August 15th is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) application anniversary. Thousands across the country will take to the streets to protect DACA, TPS (Temporary Protected Status), and other local priorities for our immigrant communities. With recent attacks by the Administration, Texas Attorney General Paxton, and U.S. General Kelly more than 800,000 DACA recipients and 350,000 TPS immigrants will face threats of deportations and lose their ability to live freely.
Join Washington Dream Coalition, Oregon DACA Coalition, and San Diego Dream Team as we rally to defend these programs and ensure all undocumented youth, families, and workers live free from the fear of deportation.
The march will begin at Sturgus Park: 904 Sturgus Ave. S Seattle, WA 98144
The rally will be held at Hing Hay Park: 423 Maynard Ave S. Seattle, WA 98104

Also, join us on Monday August 14th for a Poster Making Party from 6-8 PM. Come and build community as we prepare for our rally the next day!
This is not the first time we have faced difficulties, we have fought before, and we have won. We will win again!
