Our Actions

  • Shutdown ICE - Los Angeles

    "Progressive immigrant rights are never just given, or granted they have always been fought for and demanded."

  • Protesting 287(g) - San Bernardino

    “President Obama, use your executive power to halt deportations.”


DREAM Team Los Angeles was founded in advocacy and forged in activism. Undocumented youth activists advocating for the rights of the undocumented immigrant community. We took to the streets to fight for the Federal DREAM Act, legislation that would have granted a pathway to U.S. citizenship for undocumented youth, an almost 10 year battle to achieve its vote in Congress. When legislation failed in 2010 we directed our attention to President Obama to use his executive authority to grant administrative relief to the undocumented community. Through the use of peaceful, non-violent civil disobedience actions we achieved the policies of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action and Parental Accountability). This is a brief look at our actions.
  • A civil disobedience is “orchestrated plans to affect some particular change. This is one of the ways you change the world is by putting your body on the gears of history and make them stop at a particular place, at a particular time, to make a particular point.” - Tom Morello

  • Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. - First Amendment

  • “Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?” - Henry David Thoreau

  • "The demonstration is the poor man's printing press. And his right to use it has got to be as inviolate as the rich man's right to print his newspaper, or else our talk about free speech is just a mockery." - Michael Hannon

  • “A lot of people are troubled by civil disobedience. As soon as you talk about committing civil disobedience they get a little upset. But that's exactly the purpose of civil disobedience, to upset people, to trouble them, to disturb them. We who commit civil disobedience are disturbed too and we need to disturb those who are in charge…” - Howard Zinn
