In 2012, undocumented immigrants won a major victory with President Obama’s announcement of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Since then over 730,000 young immigrants have used DACA to succeed in academics, engage in cutting-edge research and innovation, and become emboldened advocates for permanent fixes to America’s broken immigration system - while still living in fear of deportation. Four talented, ambitious, and nationally-recognized undocumented millennials will discuss how they have challenged the public perception of the 12 million undocumented immigrants through the use of innovative advocacy tactics, digital organization, and story sharing.
