A group of Dreamers will depart from New York City. They will walk 220 miles to Washington, DC. We are putting our futures in jeopardy because our present is unbearable.

 Inspired by the heroism of the 4 SWER youth from Miami, 5 youth from the NYSYLC, along with community members and other allies have begun plans to kick off a NYC counterpart to the Trail of Dreams. The NYSYLC is a youth led organization that works on improving access to higher education and creating equal opportunity for immigrant youth, regardless of immigration status, through leadership development, organizing and grassroots advocacy.

With over 250 miles separating the NYC harbor from Washington, DC, the group plans to kick off the event on April 10th with a community send off, as a group of brave youth and their supporters walk to DC. They plan to join the walkers on May 1st and make several stops along the way to bring awareness about the issues that undocumented youth and their families face.
