An Intern's Witness of Youth Organizing

The Rally for Tuition Equity for DREAMers and the public hearing where Jersey City’s officials passed the resolution* unanimously was an incredible experience. The tuition equality bill, currently pending before the New Jersey legislature, would allow the so-called NJ DREAMers (a term used to describe undocumented students who were brought to the United States at a young age) equal access to higher education in the state through paying in-state tuition rates.

Let's Learn NC: Tuition Equality is good for NC students and good for the state!

Tuesday, February 5 marked the launch of a new campaign seeking college tuition equality for all North Carolina students. Let’s Learn NC is all about fairness, opportunity and equal access to education. The group advocates for the same college tuition for all North Carolina students, because higher education should be equally accessible to all state residents.

Petition for in-state tuition for immigrant youth

Many non-citizen youth (some, but not all, lack full legal documentation)  believe in the dream that getting an education is their ticket to a secure future, yet find that dream blocked when they try to go to college.  RI public colleges charge these students international student rates, even though they have grown up here and graduated from local high schools.  This bill would allow them to attend college at in-state rates, just like their classmates.  It costs the state nothing.  It doesn't displace any students who are full citizens.
