The City of Fresno voted 5-1 to sign onto an amicus brief for the Supreme Court in support of DACA recipients. We must continue to do more as a city and as a community to stand up for the rights of the others that are all too often under attack.
MFV will be training national, state, and local organizations and volunteers to register and engage eligible voters by the multitudes as part of MFV’s National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) activities. We are encouraging all eligible voters to register and motivate others to do the same, regardless of their age.

Two years ago, President Trump ended DACA for Dreamers, reversing a campaign promise to help Dreamers and instead unleashing an anti-immigrant agenda from which few have been spared. We stand with undocumented youth and commend their extraordinary courage, resilience, and boundless enthusiasm to contribute to our country in spite of major obstacles.
