Our Story

DreamActivist is a community of over 300,000 activists from around the country. Our members take action on issues that are important to them and the communities in which they live.

We were founded in 2008 as a safe space for undocumented youth to organize. After initially focusing efforts on passage of the federal DREAM Act, DreamActivist soon grew to become the platform for young people and their parents to fight deportations online. We have given hundreds of activists across the country the tools and know-how to organize. With each success, DreamActivist members took stronger, bolder action, drew new lines in the sand, and pushed the immigrant rights movement toward bigger and better victories.

The work of DreamActivist, which spearheaded new and innovative ways to take action, is replicated today in every major organization advocating for the rights of immigrants.
