By Billie Fidlin, Director of Justice & Outreach

In 2017 National Justice for Our Neighbors produced a video, sharing words from DACA students about what it means to be able to go to school in the United States. What it means for their futures, and in turn, I would say, for our future, as these wonderful young people participate in our nation. Funding for education is hard to come by, and we hope that you will give generously to The Long Journey Scholarship Fund.

The video shares the words of many students, words that express their dreams and hopes for their future. The video can be found at the following link, and we hope you will share it with your congregation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA-TGAHOZls
