On August 15 - the 5th anniversary of the first DACA application - we will protect the millions of immigrants who depend on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA has provided more than one million immigrant youth with the opportunity for jobs, drivers licenses, and more stability to our communities.
DACA is under threat. The administration has until September 5th the rescind DACA or 10 state attorneys general will sue. The clock is ticking - we must take to the streets and stand our ground! This August 15th, remind them our vocal majority stands with immigrants.
We need you to show up. Bring a sign. Bring your voice.
It’s time to fight! #HereToStay

Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor when she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 — just one week after performing at President Obama’s 2nd inaugural parade in 2013. After her death, they asked us to stand up, speak out, and Wear Orange to raise awareness about gun violence.
We wear orange for Hadiya and to honor the more than 90 lives cut short and the hundreds more injured by gun violence every day — and to demand action. Orange is what hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others from harm. Orange is a bright, bold color that demands to be seen. Orange expresses our collective hope as a nation — a hope for a future free from gun violence.
