Yesterday, The Rev. Richard H. Graham, bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod, joined Assistant Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) and other faith leaders to announce the DREAM Sabbath.
The DREAM Act Sabbath is a faith-based campaign in which the faith community will encourage congregations and individuals to focus a worship service, or part of a worship service, on the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act provides undocumented students with a chance to earn legal status if they came to the US as children, are long-term U.S. residents, have good moral character and complete two years of college or military service. The campaign will begin September 18 and run through October 9 at churches, synagoges and mosques around the country.
Listen to Bishop Graham and other faith leaders discuss the DREAM Act in the video below. Watch it through to the end because there is an important story from Dreamer Gaby Pacheco.
