We have launched a Giving Tuesday Campaign focusing on the challenges to education for immigrant students in Arizona. Giving Tuesday is November 29th, 2016 and it’s a global day in which people are encouraged to invest in a cause they believe in. We are asking you to invest in scholarships for students who want to achieve a higher education. .
This campaign is focused on the challenges of undocumented students in acquiring a higher education. In Arizona, undocumented students have to pay out-of-state tuition and don’t qualify for public scholarships or financial aid. Some community colleges and state universities have allowed students to pay in-state tuition if they have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a type of immigration relief announced via executive order by President Obama in 2012. However, President-elect Donald Grump has announced his intention to cancel the program, leaving thousands of students once again in legal limbo and disabling them from paying in-state-tuition in Arizona. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for scholarships while at the same time motivating students not to give up on their dreams.
Invest today and leave us a comment bellow, telling us why YOUR dreams don’t quit.
