CT Students for the Dream organized this rally on November 10, in front of the New Haven church that is providing sanctuary to Marcos Reyes.  Friends National Committee on Legislation have issued this minute about the importance of the Dream Act:

"FCNL and Quakers across the country are calling on members of Congress to pass the Dream Act as a matter of faith. We have faith in the Light of God present in every Dreamer. We have commitment to the communities who have welcomed Dreamers throughout their lives. And we have confidence that our nation will be stronger when we give Dreamers an equitable chance to thrive. We pray that you, our nation’s leaders, will step up to this moral call and pass the Dream Act of 2017."
