Support the Maryland DREAM Act!
This petition made change with 1,834 supporters!
Students from all over Maryland, supported by local faith, education, and labor leaders are fighting for an affordable college education and the right to pursue their dreams.
Under the proposed “Maryland DREAM Act:”- Higher Education- Tuition Charges- Maryland High School Students Bill (SB167, HB 470), students who live in Maryland would qualify for in-state tuition rates at Maryland’s colleges and universities regardless of immigration status.
Their movement has grown from a small group of students in our local high school and college campuses to a unified group of thousands who are actively pushing for change and passage of the bill.
In February, 100 students testified before the Maryland Senate and on March 7th, more than 1,500 students and supporters rallied in Annapolis during CASA de Maryland's Annual Immigration Action Night. We filled Senate hallways, offices and hearing rooms. Our message rang loud and true.
Last week, we had our first victory – passage of the Maryland DREAM Act in the Senate!
CASA de Maryland's members will continue to fight in Annapolis until all Maryland high school students have an affordable option to attend college, but we need your help!
Sign your name to contact the Delegates in the Maryland State House and let them know to VOTE YES ON THE MD DREAM ACT this week!
