Event Description

"Organizing for Action" will present a special screening of "The Dream Is Now," a 30-minute documentary by Director, Davis Guggenheim, who also produced "An Inconvenient Truth" and "Waiting for Superman." The film captures the debate over immigration reform by shining a spotlight on the undocumented children of immigrants desperate to earn their citizenship and to contribute to the country they call "home," but unable to pursue an education, employment, or military service because of their immigration status.

The film goes beyond the personal by placing the stories of five extraordinary "dreamers" in a larger context, exploring the consequences of our current immigration policies - not just for the young people of today but for our country's future. Both moving and thought-provoking, "The Dream Is Now" brings this pressing issue to America's attention so we can all listen, discuss, and decide for ourselves what is right, what is fair, and what is best for our nation.
