Loyola Joins National Call-In Campaign Supporting the DREAM Act

Earlier this month, Loyola and over a dozen other Jesuit colleges (AJCU) launched a call-in campaign supporting the Dream Act.  The campaign was held at all three of Loyola’s campuses – Lake Shore, Water Tower & the Health Sciences campus in Maywood.  With the upcoming March 5th expiration date of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, volunteers tabled and informed the Loyola community the urgency behind this advocacy campaign.

Similarly to the DREAM Act letter-writing campaign last fall, participants were given a script along with the contact information for their local representatives which included both Members of Congress and the Senate.
