Ending DACA is Jagged Justice: Join our September 18, 2017
Jagged Justice Call WOCN, Inc. is greatly disturbed and concerned for the lives of our dear family, friends, colleagues and communities that are impacted by the decision handed down today to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA). DACA provided a safety net to adolescent and adult children of undocumented immigrants by providing them with work permits, allowing them to support themselves and their families and to build a promising future. The ending of DACA is #JaggedJustice and places in harm’s way dedicated workers who are now in danger of being deported, and DACA recipients who are victims of crime, including domestic violence and sexual assault are now much less likely to reach out for and access help. This has devastating implications for immigrant communities of color who are on the margins of the margins. WOCN, Inc. stands in solidarity with those directly impacted by the DACA decision, and lift up efforts to support the Dream Act. We invite you to join us on September 18, 2017 from 5:00-7:00 pm EST for another important #JaggedJustice call. To learn more: September 18 Next Jagged Justice Call
