FORUM: DREAM Act and Education

DREAM Act
Prince George's Room, Stamp Student Union
Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

A forum to address the local and national significance of the DREAM Act for Latin American immigrants and Marylanders in general. 

In May 2011, Maryland passed the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act and became the eleventh state in the nation to grant undocumented students instate tuition at public institutions of higher learning. The law has been challenged by a petition drive calling for a referendum in November 2012. In August, Casa de Maryland, a non-profit organization devoted to advancing the rights of Latino and Latina immigrants, challenged the legality of the petition drive in court. 

We invite students, faculty and staff to submit questions for the panelists on the LASC UMD Facebook page or by e-mail to lasc@umd.edu by Monday, September 26, 2011.  

The Panel will include:

  • The Honorable Victor Ramirez, Maryland State Senate and author of the Maryland Dream Act
  • Kim Propeack , Director of Community Organizing and Political Action, CASA de Maryland
  • Roberto Juarez, Maryland Dream Youth Committee
  • Mary Giovagnoli, Director, Immigration Policy Center, American Immigration Council 

Moderator:

Karin Rosemblatt, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Latin American Studies Center 

Welcome Remarks:

Bonnie Thornton Dill, Dean, College of Arts and Humanities
