TWEET STORM for DACA RENEWALS
Join United We Dream TODAY
Friday, May 18th from 1-2 PM ET
as we partner with organizations and digital influencers to ensure that eligible DACA recipients have all the resources
they need when it comes to renewing their DACA 
 

Link to DACA Renewals Social Media toolkit
    
Background
Right now, DACA recipients can apply to renew their DACA. This process is urgent, complicated, and expensive - applicants must submit $495 fee along with their renewal applications. After Trump ended DACA on September 5, 2017 there have been a series of blowbacks by courts which have now made it possible for renewals to be open again.

Today we need YOUR help in amplifying the message that DACA renewals are still open. We need to reach those who can renew their DACA, and get them to do so as soon as possible, as we do not know how long young immigrants will be able to continue to do so.

[MAY 18, 2018 - 1PM ET] TWITTER STORM
This May 18, 2018 at 1pm ET we would like to host a Twitter Storm with organizations and influencers to make sure we reach the DACA recipients who can today renew their protections from deportations. For this, we have created a folder with graphics that we can share widely.

We have also launched a new the webpage called renewmydaca.com for people to find about resources available for them. Among those resources: A quiz to find out DACA eligibility, and links to our DACA renewal fund.
