The Los Angeles DREAM Team Coalition will hold a DREAM Fast Vigil to stress the urgency and need for accountability around the strong bi-partisan student legalization legislations known as the DREAM Act and the Student Adjustment Act.

Students, educators, and their friends have held countless actions including call-in days, legislative visits, rallies, marches, sign on letters, petition drives, and national mobilization efforts, yet the DREAM Act has not seen significant movement in Congress since it passed the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 16-3 vote in October 2003.

Congress will return to Washington DC in early September to close the session. In order to communicate our seriousness to our elected representatives and to increase public attention, we have launched the 2-week DREAM Fast Vigil, the most dramatic, non-violent grassroots DREAM Act effort to date!

This action is coordinated on the national level by the United We DREAM Campaign and the New American Opportunity Campaign.

Students will play a key role in this fasting since they will be in the front lines in the following events:

    Sept 13 2004: FAST Vigil Launch Press Conference

    Sept 14 2004: Cultural Arts Day

    Sept 15 2004: Teacher Supporter Day

    Sept 16 2004: General Supporter Day

    Sept 17 2004: Citizenship Day/Voter Registration

    Sept 18 2004: Parent Supporter Day

    Sept 19 2004: Mock Graduation Event

    Sept 20 2004: Interfaith Supporter Day

    Sept 21 2004: Labor Supporter Day

    Sept 22 2004: Political Accountability Day

    Sept 23 2004: March and Vigil Day

    Sept 24 2004: Skit and Puppet Activity

    Sept 25 2004: Cultural Show Closing
