With a few seconds you could help 3 million children
The DREAM Act is an act that gives aspiring immigrant children brought to the United States through no fault of their own a chance to become citizens by either serving two years in the military or by completing four years of higher education.
Given the opportunity for educational equality, over 3 million young immigrants can meet their dreams and better contribute to their local and national community. Everyone dreams, and that’s why we must pass the DREAM Act!
My students have been working hard putting together a petition to have Congress include the DREAM Act in their immigration reform. Signing this petition would mean a lot to them, and to the 3 million children of immigrants and undocumented workers whose lives would change for the better were they given the opportunity for affordable higher education and a path to citizenship.
Please reblog and signal boost and, most importantly, sign the petition!
Reblogging again we need 150 signatures by the end of today!
Hi! I just started a tumblr, the Transgender Couchsurfing Network. After seeing dozens of posts come across my dash about displaced or homeless trans people needing places to crash, I decided that there had to be a way to organize these posts somehow, and to put those in need in contact with those willing to lend a hand. If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you have a couch or floor or spare bedroom available for someone in need, I urge you to reblog this post, follow the blog, and get the word out. Everything is still under heavy construction, but the more people that see and hear about this blog, the more people will be able to benefit from it! I know that there are so many people here on tumblr who are in need of a place to stay for a night or two, and I also know how many amazing, wonderful people would be willing to host someone and help out a trans person in need. We all know what a huge problem unemployment and homelessness are for trans people (especially TPOC and trans women) — even a place to stay for a night can make the biggest difference! So PLEASE, even if you can’t offer up your couch, REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST. I really, really think that this is something that could help a lot of people, and I would LOVE to see this spammed all over my dash and the dashes of all of my lovely followers!!
I posted last week asking people if they knew of some good resources for male victims of sexual assault. Here is the list people came up with:
