The Arizona DREAM Act Coalition is an immigrant youth-led organization focusing on the fight for higher education and immigrant rights. In 2006 Arizona passed Proposition 300, requiring undocumented youth to pay out-of-state tuition to attend college and made them ineligible to receive merit-based public scholarships. Prop 300 was the first law targeted at immigrant students. Many students dropped out of school and went deeper into the shadows. Yet, a small group of students from Arizona State University began a support group in which they were able to embrace their stories as immigrant youth. This group was the founder of the ADAC, whose members have long ago stepped out of the shadows and announced their status as “Undocumented and Unafraid.
/// We are a coalition of students from across the state of Arizona that are educating and advocating for the passage of the DREAM Act along with other laws that affect the immigrant community as a whole.
