Praying for DREAM
Yesterday over 100 faith leaders and DREAM students from around the country descended on Capitol Hill for an emergency prayer summit, Jericho March around Senate office buildings and visits with key Senate offices advocating for the DREAM Act.
The day started in the chapel of the United Methodist building where Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith leaders and courageous immigrant students who will a gain a chance to achieve their dreams if the bill passes articulated the moral imperative to pass this bill. The inspiring group then marched hand-in-hand around the Senate office buildings, singing hymns all along the way and stopping for a moving prayer service before fanning out in the Hart Senate office building to press their Senators to show moral courage and vote yes on the DREAM Act.
