Immigrant Rights Issues & Defend DACA
President Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2012, entitling almost 1 million individuals to immunity from deportation in the United States. ARTE believes that DACA is essential to our country’s economy, culture, and ethos. In addition to protecting DACA, ARTE is passionate about fighting for all issues of immigration justice. If you are an educator, or in need of extra tools and resources, we created an ongoing toolkit for you.
All over the country, artists and activists have been taking a stand. Here are a few of our favourites. If you want to share your own immigrant rights inspired work with us, tag us on instagram, facebook or twitter.
