Held in partnership with PLUMAS, Political Latinxs United for Movement and Action in Society,the Dream Gala is the event that coincides with the Dream Fund, a crowdfund used to raise money for emergency for undocumented students at UMD. All proceeds in the fund will go to these students and their families immiediet legal needs. Our number one priority is to protect undocumented students and their familes from detention and deportation. The funds raised would be for worst-case scenarios we hope to never encounter, but which unfortunately may occur. We hope that our cosponsors for tonights event would be inspired to raise funds at their evernt for years to come.
Thanks to the support of our cosponsors, last year’s Dream Gala successfully raised $3,000 in support of UMD’s undocumented student community. This year’s gala seeks to continue to raise money in support of current and future Undocuterp needs. This is currently a time of uncertainty for many students affected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs. We anticipate that as long as this current administration is in office, the undocumented community will continue to suffer. It is for this reason that the Dream Gala aims to continue our financial and emotional support for undocumented students at the University of Maryland.
*Tickets are $10 for students and $12 for faculty, staff, and community members
