Event Description

After years of struggle, failed immigration reform bills in Congress, and record deportations of millions of people, the people pushed President Obama to create a new administrative relief program called DAPA which would protect about 5 million parents of US citizen children or legal permanent residents from the risk of deportation. While the program does not protect everyone, and we must continue to fight for something permanent, it was a huge victory for our movement. But the program has been held up in court because a group of 26 racist Attorneys General sued the Obama administration, claiming he had no authority to create this program. The case now in the Supreme Court and we must continue to push them to be on the right side of history. 

There are 28,000 parents in Connecticut that would benefit from DAPA. We will showcase in incredible posters some of our community leaders who have taken a stand and decided to fight back, to protect this program, to protect their families. 

Suggested Donation: $25.00 which incluldes wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres. 100% of the proceeds will be used for DAPA-related work. To RSVP go to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/faces-of-dapa-an-art-exhibit-tickets-25266616129
