How to Help DACA Recipients Renew their Applications

Those granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are people who are American in every sense but on paper. Despite living nearly their entire lives in the United States, they are under threat of losing their DACA status, including their work authorizations and protection from deportation to countries they barely remember.
DACA is currently being challenged in the courts, jeopardizing the futures of about 700,000 individuals.
As undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, Dreamers are able to apply for temporary protection from deportation through DACA. These Dreamers’ applications must be renewed every two years to retain the important protections against deportation, along with work authorizations.
Dreamers’ futures remain uncertain and the lives of DACA recipients — and other Dreamers — are hanging in the balance.
Those who have already been granted DACA are — for the moment — able to renew their DACA protections. We have launched this page to help Dreamers pay for their $495 DACA renewal application, allowing them to continue living and working in their communities for another two years. Meet Dreamers who need your support.
**GoFundMe has partnered with on this important cause to help Dreamers keep their protections against the threat of deportation. Numerous organizations are doing important work to protect Dreamers.
