Standing Strong with Our DACA Students and Families!
CABE supports and believes in our DACA students and families!

— Jan Gustafson Corea, CEO
THE CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION FOR BILINGUAL EDUCATION (CABE) STANDS STRONG alongside the hundreds of thousands of DACA students and their families impacted by the outrageous decision by the White House to rescind their rights granted under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act. As educators, we are dedicated to the education rights of all children, including those from diverse immigrant backgrounds. Our school systems have invested valuable resources in our DACA students, and they in turn have responded by successfully continuing their education and by contributing in important ways to the workforce.   

EACH STUDENT DESERVES to be treated with respect and as a valuable human being--with hopes, dreams, aspirations, and goals--and allowed to fulfill those dreams in the only country they know--the United States of America. 
CABE sends out a call to all of our members, chapters and partners to act on the CABE vision of Biliteracy, Educational Equity and 21st Century success for All, and support DACA students and families in our schools and communities. 

ONE WAY TO SUPPORT is to call the number below in Washington DC to express your dissatisfaction to Congress about the announcement and to request congressional action that protects the rights of DACA students and families!

A Heart-felt Call to Action!
Californians Together is calling for each of us to contact Congress to request their support of three important bills that will impact our DACA students:
