THIS Friday April 19, 2013 at 6:00PM in the FedEx Global Education Center, Nelson Mandela Auditorium (301 Pittsboro St., Chapel Hill, NC 27514)
Please join us for the long-awaited, nation-wide, same-day film screening of The Dream is Now, the new interactive documentary about the DREAM Act by David Guggenheim (director of An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for Superman).
 
The film gives voice to and puts a human face on the undocumented children of immigrants who are desperate to earn their citizenship and give back to the only country they’ve ever called “home.” The film also places these stories in a larger context and explores the consequences of continuing our current policies and maintaining the status quo – consequences not just for these young people today, but for our country’s future.
Hosted by Students United for Immigrant Equality (SUIE) and The Dream is Now.
