Join us for SIM's Annual Celebration Dinner!
Celebrating victories, realizing the Dream!
Join the Student Immigrant Movement as we celebrate our 7th year in the struggle. Featuring keynote speaker Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and undocumented American.
Meet our leaders, hear our stories, learn about the work of our past year, and support our efforts to continue leading the way in our State.
This year we’re proud to say the DREAM Movement has claimed the largest change in American immigration policy in 26 years. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will allow eligible undocumented youth to be free from the threat of deportation and to apply for 2-year work permits. While we celebrate this change which will benefit millions throughout the US, we remain committed to a future where all undocumented immigrants are treated with dignity and respect. With a victory under our belt, we’ve grown in courage and conviction in our ability to succeed. Come support and be a part of this amazing youth-led movement that is changing the face of America.
We’ll be joined this year by Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who in 2011, through an essay published in the The New York Times Magazine, came out as an undocumented immigrant. Jose Antonio Vargas went on to found Define American, an organization dedicated to bringing real stories and encouraging real conversation in the Immigration debate in the United States. Jose Antonio Vargas also wrote a TIME Magazine cover story in June of this year, the cover of which included 7 SIM leaders among 30 other DREAM leaders from throughout the country.
