Save DACA Rally

Our friends over at Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance, Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies, and Greater Lafayette ACLU put on a great rally to support DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. We were not the organizers of the event, but many of us attended. There are personal stories that dreamers tell during the rally that everyone should hear.

A little synopsis of what DACA is:
DACA allows certain children of undocumented immigrants to apply to receive consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. These allows these individuals the ability to live and work in the United States without fear of deportation during that period. This program does not confer US citizenship status.

For many the US is the only country they have every know. Many started lives and families here. These are our friends, family, and members of the community and we should stand to protect them. We as a country made them a promise. We should uphold that promise. Trump is rumored to be ending the program. He needs to make a decision by September 5th.

Please call your representatives and tell them to defend DACA and codify it into law.

As a bonus GLIA put together a great informational card that is scanned and posted here:

Boiler Bridge Bash 2017

We attended the Boiler Bridge Bash 2017 to let people know about us, but more importantly to register voters. It was a lot of fun, and for our first real public outing; it went surprisingly well. We managed to register 65 people! Not too shabby! Let’s hope we continue to grow that number heading into 2018.


After some prep time, we are finally live! While the site is still mostly framing and some sheet rock, this will be home to all the comings and goings of Greater Lafayette Indivisible. Our calendar is live as well, and you can find our meeting schedule there. Expect more to be posted soon!
