By August 16, 2017August 23rd, 2017No Comments

“I’m a beneficiary of the DACA program and I am a FIGHTER.”
– Jung Woo Kim, NAKASEC’s co-lead of the 22-day DREAM Action speaking at Tuesday’s United We Dream rally in Washington, D.C.

The first day of DREAM Action: Our Youth Our Future was filled with hope, love and excitement. NAKASEC community members joined together with leaders from the Latino, African, African American, Muslim, faith, labor and other communities to fight for DACA and TPS.

From now through September 5th, NAKASEC will be hosting prayer vigils at 8:30am and 5:30pm at Murrow Park (19th and H Streets NW) and holding a round-the-clock presence in front of the White House. Please join us!
