Over 154,000 Dreamers are eligible to renew their DACA status by October 5. Join us to make sure that as many Dreamers as possible are able to file their applications before the deadline.

Since time is of the essence, this program is available nationwide. All Dreamers need to do is apply online and have an EAD card (work permit). They'll receive a check made out to the Department of Homeland Security within 48 hours.
