So a friend of mine sent me campus progress weekly news letter and I watched their video about the DREAM Act
and the student who's speaking about it and why it's important. Nothing new right ? Well, earlier I was on the phone
with the famous Lizbeth Mateo. I was star struck for a moment there. We were talking about a meeting taking place
to start a new group aimed at recruiting not just students, but community members. The meeting is Wednesday, so if
anyone in Los Angeles wants info, email me and I'll send it your way. As we were talking I remembered how during
the May 1 marches, there were six different organizations marching when everyone could have just organized, put aside
their drama and planned something bigger. It's the nature of things I guess. Even before the meeting started, someone
emailed her back telling her that the name of the group was already taken and that the group shouldn't be using that name.
Whatever you know ? It's just a name that can be easily changed at the meeting. But having local heads gather and plan things
out will definitely be good for business. I plan on getting heavily involved, least as much as I can so keep an eye out.
*The yet to be named group would: Collaborate and plan actions supporting the DREAM Act. Keep organizations updated and support member organizations Be open to all individuals seeking to pass the DREAM Act. We seek the support and initiative of students, parents, teachers, counselors, community leaders and others who would like to help this cause.
