Call to Action: National Educator Coming Out Day

Dream Educational Empowerment Program invites you to join us on April 9th to engage in the first National Educator Coming Out Day.

This day is dedicated to educators who have stood in solidarity and have taken an active role in supporting undocumented immigrant students.

Moreover, this day is an opportunity for students to thank the educators that have been allies and celebrate each other’s resilience/accomplishments. We also invite you to engage your school and organizational leaders to take a picture with a graphic provided by United We Dream DEEP stating their support for undocumented students and post on your website/social media outlets on April 9th.
