Happy Thanksgiving, ya’ll! Thankful for my FREEDOM, because as fucked up as you think our country is, there are people who have sacrificed their entire lives to be here because their country is even more fucked up than ours. I’ve recently checked my privilege when I encountered a colleague who doesn’t have the freedoms that we take for granted every single day.
This baby blanket is for one of the many #DREAMers who make our country the best it can be. Thanks @welcomeblanket for finding a good home for it.
Did you know that if DACA is eliminated, the U.S. would lose about $460 billion in GDP over the next 10 years? Did you also know that many DACA protected youth choose to be organ donors who could save a life, potentially your own?

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy this day of gratitude & togetherness with your family, friends, and loved ones! Also acknowledge historical ignorance facilitates those who are already in power. The Thanksgiving story was fabricated to whitewash history. The true story is about how undocumented immigrants from Europe were welcomed by the true Indigenous Americans to this land. After the kind Indigenous taught them how to cultivate and survive in this land the invaders betrayed them by enslaving, raping, committing the biggest genocide in history on millions of them, and stealing their land. While I celebrate being grateful of my blessings today and not the fake holiday story, I also mourn for the millions of Indigenous victims of the atrocious crimes by the European invaders.
So thankful for the beautiful men and women who serve this country. God bless them and God bless America

Thank you @ajplus for sharing about our work! ✊🏽
Our very own @orrchards asked #DACA recipients to share how many days they have until their work permits expire, and the tweet went viral with hundreds of responses. This speaks volumes about the urgency that our community feels to pass a clean Dream Act before the end of the year!
Share your story with us here on #Instagram: Tell us how many days you have for your DACA to expire and how this would affect you. Tag us and use the hashtag #DreamActNow! ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
