The Dream is Now
Take Action- http://www.thedreamisnow.org/take-action Help make 11 million dreams come true!
The Dream Is Now, a new 30-minute documentary film by Davis Guggenheim (Academy Award-wining director of An Inconvenient Truth), tells the moving story of those directly affected by a broken immigration system, the undocumented children of immigrants who yearn to contribute more to the country they call home. This thought-providing film puts a human face on the issue and brings attention to Congress' efforts to pass reform that will give undocumented youth and their families the chance to earn their citizenship.

What is it like to grow up as an undocumented youth in America? In "Undocumented Americans," three undocumented youth who arrived as young children - Jong-Min, Pedro and Silvia - share their stories of how they are fighting hard to achieve their piece of the American dream. Their experiences are emblematic of the struggles of millions of undocumented children and youth in America who deal daily with isolation from peers, the struggle to pursue an education, fears of detention and deportation and the trauma of separation from family and loved ones. This video calls for valuing the contributions of and caring for all members of our society, even those without documentation.
