Learn how to have compassionate, non-judgmental conversations across lines of difference with this powerful technique.

In advance of President Donald Trump’s expected announcement Tuesday possibly terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), People’s Action Campaigns Director Mehrdad Azemun, provided this statement:

 

“DACA is a popular program that has led to the liberation of hundreds of thousands of people.

 

“If Trump ends a program that has bipartisan support and has kept hundreds of thousands of families together, he will cement his reputation as a cruel and heartless president.

 

“No matter what decision Trump announces on Tuesday, DACA-mented leaders and their families have demonstrated that they won’t stop fighting. They are #HereToStay, and millions are prepared to fight alongside them until we win justice for all families.


To speak with Mehrdad Azemun, or to arrange interviews with young immigrants who would be affected by changes to DACA, please contact Kathy Mulady at People’s Action k.mulady@peoplesaction.org or (206) 992-8787.

About People’s Action

People’s Action is a national network of 38 state and local grassroots, power-building organizations united in fighting for justice. Our organization recently released a vision for a national Homes Guarantee that has already prompted major legislation from champions including U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib. We operate the largest progressive rural organizing project in the country. Prior to endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, we completed a national forum series that The Nation called “the most in-depth, people-powered forum” of the 2020 cycle.”
