How can YOU help pass the Pennsylvania DREAM Act

We need YOUR help to pass the Pennsylvania DREAM Act. We urge you to contact your local state representatives and pressure them to vote yes on Senate Bill 713 when it is presented in front of them.
Below we have provided a tool you can use to look up your local elected official.
Please also sign the petition below to ensure that your elected officials get an email urging them to pass this important piece of legislation

On March 16 Senator Lloyd Smucker (R) from Lancaster PA Introduced the Pennsylvania DREAM Act into the Senate. Juntos DREAMers, along with other youth in the state and the Pennsylvania Immigrant and Citizenship Coalition (PICC)  sat down and met with the senator prior to the bill being introduced to draft the initial language of the bill and ensure that this bill is for and by the community that will be most affected.
Now that the bill has been introduced it is up to us, the people, to pressure our elected officials into making sure that this important piece of legislation passes.

The Pennsylvania DREAM Act will provide the opportunity for undocumented young adults who have graduated from a high school in Pennsylvania, or have a GED certificate , to pay in-state tuition rates at public institutions of higher learning in Pennsylvania. Most of the time undocumented students applying to college get charged international or out-of state tuition rates, which are 3-4 times more expensive than the regular in-state tuition they would get charged if they were documented. These are young adults that have grown up in Pennsylvania and they and their families have been contributing to the economy of the state. In 2010 families with undocumented heads of households paid approximately $135 million in state and local taxes. Passing the PA DREAM Act would increase the potential for those benefiting from it  to increase their potential to contribute back to the state even more by becoming college educated productive tax payers.

This bill is not only beneficial to undocumented young adults but also to the whole of Pennsylvania. Allowing more students to access a college education, who would otherwise not be able to afford it, will increase the number of students enrolling into public institutions of higher learning and therefore increase college revenues. State DREAM Acts have passed already in 13 other states and they have provided huge economic benefits to public institutions.

We in Juntos see that denying students to ability to pay in-state tuition is unjust and as against the values of equality that this country was founded upon. We see education as a human right and therefore the access to education as well.
