WICHITA, Kan. — State lawmakers participated in a legislative forum today, answering questions from national dreamers, from the Dream Action Coalition.
The group’s goal is to act as a voice to America’s undocumented youth. At the forum, people had the opportunity to ask questions and voice their concerns to lawmakers.
“We wanted to allow the dreamers who are some of which are undocumented an opportunity to understand because they lack the ability to vote they can still use their voice to engage other people who can vote,” said Djuan Wash, the Director of Communications.
The group also spent some time educating people about the issues faced by illegal immigrants in the U.S., and helping undocumented people learn how to get involved in the political process.
