Organizer Boot Camp: How to Build a Base and Move Into Action This intensive, three-month training moves through the core organizing concepts of power, self-interest, and one-to-one relational meetings, and teaches you how to make propositions, hold effective meetings and create a powerful team. Materials and sessions are in English and Spanish.

In advance of President Donald Trump’s expected announcement Tuesday possibly terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), People’s Action Campaigns Director Mehrdad Azemun, provided this statement:

 

“DACA is a popular program that has led to the liberation of hundreds of thousands of people.

 

“If Trump ends a program that has bipartisan support and has kept hundreds of thousands of families together, he will cement his reputation as a cruel and heartless president.

 

“No matter what decision Trump announces on Tuesday, DACA-mented leaders and their families have demonstrated that they won’t stop fighting. They are #HereToStay, and millions are prepared to fight alongside them until we win justice for all families.


To speak with Mehrdad Azemun, or to arrange interviews with young immigrants who would be affected by changes to DACA, please contact Kathy Mulady at People’s Action k.mulady@peoplesaction.org or (206) 992-8787.
