Dreaming in D.C.

Published On: Donate

Last week, First Trinity Lutheran Church in D.C held a candlelight vigil for young students organizing in favor of the DREAM Act. Organized by PICO National Network and United We DREAM the vigil brought together faith leaders and “dreamers”: young immigrants who came to this country as children and now, as they get ready to go off to college or serve in the military, find themselves denied the opportunity to live a full and productive life. Among the “dreamers” was Lucina Martinez, a 19-year old from San Antonio who had been on a hunger strike for 27 days. Watch the video below and hear what they had to say as they prayed on the eve of the House vote.
