Last week, United We Dream showed politicians that they don’t get to call the shots
-- immigrant youth leaders have led a powerful movement for justice for years and we
won’t give up!
At our first-ever State of the Dream address, United We Dream leaders from across the
country, including Speaker Boehner’s district in Ohio and House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Goodlatte’s district in Virginia, converged on Capitol Hill to recommit to th
e fight and lay out our vision for 2014. Thanks to the powerful online network of supporters like you, our voices not only rang out on Capitol Hill but also online, with hundreds of tweets and live-streams.
We fanned out around the Capitol and visited dozens of Members of Congress after the
address and your tweets helped us send a clear message to President Obama that we won’t
let him off the hook for his atrocious record of nearly 2 million deportations. We also reminded Speaker Boehner to stop obstructing progress and show us the bills. Overall, we made a big impact, with
tweets driven on Monday, Feb. 3 to coincide with our first-ever State of the Dream address
people in Washington, D.C. to send a clear message to Congress and President Obama to act
