Up coming DREAM Act events

FYI this is my 202 blog post. Sweet. These two events are coming up, so help spread the word and repost as needed.

Tour de Dreams Bike Ride

Starting on August 14 and ending August 22, AB540 Student groups students from California's distinguished colleges will ride their bicycles 511 miles from UC Los Angeles's Campus to the University of California, Berkeley's Sproul Plaza to raise money for student scholarships in their respective campuses.

This will be our first annual ride where a group of dedicated students will be riding their bicycles through the California Coastline and some of California's distinguished College campuses and arrive at UCLA. Our goal this year is to raise enough money to be able to maintain and/or establish scholarships for low-income students in California. Your donation will help change the lives of a young college bound student and to push us to strive for bigger changes and accomplishments in the up coming years. Anyone interested in doing the ride can sign up through Dream Activist at the following link
