Defend DACA - 800 Candle Vigil

Hillsboro Civic Center
150 E Main Street
Hillsboro, OR 97123, US (map)



We are lighitng 800 candles on October 6th to raise local awareness for the 800,000 DACA recipients - 1 candle will symbolically represent 1,000 DACA recipients - in the United States. The executive decision to rescind DACA not only impacts hundreds of thousands of youth across the country, but hundreds here in Washington County. October 6th is the first day the program prevents recipients from renewing their permits.

We hope to count on your support to light a candle and stand in solidarity with Dreamers across the country and in our community.

La decision ejecutiva para remover el programa no solamente impacta a jovenes alrededor del pais sino aqui en nuestra comunidad tambien.

Esperamos contar con su apoyo para encender una vela y demostrar solidaridad con los DREAMERS/recipientes de DACA en nuestra comunidad.
