Work with DREAMers

After the administration’s implementation of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) in June 2012, the clinic led efforts to assist DREAMers in filing applications under the program and developed model materials for group workshops that have been used throughout the country. Clinic students and other volunteers participated in 13 DACA workshops in Austin over a single year.
