MY AMERICAN DREAMS WELCOMES YOU
MY AMERICAN DREAMS AT A GLANCE
Working through the Human Rights Commission of Sonoma County, My American Dreams began in 2013 with the mission to tell the compelling stories of Dreamers, young immigrants who obtained their status through DACA. My American Dreams transforms the hearts and minds of Americans by sharing inspiring stories of immigrants and dispelling immigration myths.
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
My American Dreams makes short films to educate and reach the hearts and minds of Americans about the undocumented members of our society. President Obama's "Dreamers Act" significantly impacts the lives of young immigrants who arrived here by their 16th birthday before 2007. We have created six films about young Dreamers whose lives illustrate how the DACA law has allowed them to come out of the economic, educational, and social shadows.
EDUCATION & EVENTS
Today’s political climate compels My American Dreams to make educational presentations to help alleviate the panic currently overflowing in our immigrant communities. We conduct immigration law clinics and Spanish-language presentations on “Know Your Rights,” deportation defense, and immigration procedures for immigrant communities.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
