whenever I forget why I do this work…. 

I remind myself that there are youth out there who do not have this support system…

youth out there who feel like they are alone…

youth who are ashamed of their immigration status…

youth who hate their parents…

who hate themselves…

who hurt themselves….

and that is why I get out of bed each morning…

because someone out there doesn’t have the strength to do so…and with this work..I hope to reach them

Education Not Deportation (“END”) is a national campaign to prevent the deportations of young people, thereby allowing immigrant youth to continue their lives in the United States, pursue higher education and achieve their dreams.

On October 5th 2011 The New York State Youth Leadership Council is taking matters into our own hands….

CALLING ALL DREAMERS!

dreamdeferredfilm:

Hello everyone!

I am currently in pre-production on a documentary about the lives of undocumented students in NYC. If you or anyone you know has a story they’d like to share, e-mail dreamdeferredfilm@gmail.com.

The film will be an intimate look at the issues facing undocumented youth from shame to hope as these students continue their education despite the limited opportunities for residents without papers.

To be fair to the issue, I want to hear your stories! As many as possible! Submit on my tumblr page or e-mail and who knows? You may be featured in the film!

To all Dreamers out there, your courage is astounding. Your stories continue to inspire me.

Thank you,

-Stefani Saintonge

PASS THE NEW YORK DREAM ACT!

It is time to make education accessible to all students, regardless of their immigration status. The New York Dream Act (S.4179) will recognize the contributions of undocumented students in the state. 

Governor Cuomo has the responsibility to stand up for these students and support the NY Dream Act. We urge him to do everything in his power to make it a reality.

Sign the petition to urge him to support the NY Dream Act immediately.
