Baltimore, MD - This Thursday, high school and college students will march across Baltimore to raise attention about the Maryland DREAM Act. After marching through downtown educating pedestrians, a crowd will gather in Hopkins Plaza to listen to Maryland DREAMers sharing their stories.
“The MD DREAM ACT is very, very important, because it will change many lives, and make the city of Baltimore better. Baltimore can be rebuilt with the efforts of immigrants and non-immigrants working together,” said Misa Garcia, a CASA Youth Committee Member and huge city booster.
The march in Baltimore is the first of several that will occur across the state as the election draws closer. The second march will be held from Silver Spring to Wheaton in Montgomery County on August 5. Each march will feature students sharing their personal stories.
Thursdays march will start at noon at 2224 E. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21231. After winding through Fells Point and the Inner Harbor, it will end at Hopkins Plaza where students will speak out. Reporters are welcome to join for the entire march or attend for the speaking component at the end.
