As the national debate over immigration continues, the voices that often get shouted down are those of young people, those who were brought to the United States without documentation and given a pathway to legal status via a work permit, only to have the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, repealed from under them. “It’s definitely been stressful, and it’s definitely been heartbreaking” says Kenia Lopez, a former DACA recipient.
Last week Saturday, November 11th we hosted our second "Grant it Forward" Fundraiser. Aside from having a blast, we were able to raise over $3000 dollars in funding that night! The generous donations will allow us to fund two more micro-loans! Currently we have funded 3 with one more on the way. See our loan recipients.
