We are individuals from the education, business, political and non-profit sectors who believe in the American dream.
We have come together to announce our support for TheDream.US, a national movement providing college scholarships to thousands of highly motivated DREAMers who cannot access federal financial aid to fund a college education. As civic leaders, we need to support these undocumented immigrant students in getting a college education that will help prepare them to be our future civic and business leaders and professionals.
TheDream.US is doing just that, and we are proud to lend them our support.
