Support the Wilshire 9 - Don't Let Los Angeles Criminalize Citizen DREAM Act Allies

This petition had 519 supporters


Nine U.S. Citizens who shutdown Wilshire Boulevard on May 20th to advocate for the DREAM Act are under attack.

LA City Attorney Carmen Trutanich is trying to charge the DREAM Act Allies with felonies that could amount to up to a year in prison and community service. They were cited and released by the CHP and that should have been the end of their punishment for the sit-in. But now they face criminal charges! We cannot allow our friends and allies to get penalized because they are fighting for our DREAMs.

Please let Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Carmen Trutanich and Councilman Ed Reyes know that this is unacceptable. Ask them to meet with the Wilshire 9 in order to stand with them and protect their rights to advocate and fight for justice.

Sign the email petition and make the calls before their March court date:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa: 213-978-0600
Councilman Ed Reyes: 213-473-7001
