We Fight Fear Immigration Conference

2017 Bezos Scholar Sammie Casas and educator Ann Marano promoted maintaining Dallas’s sanctuary city status by educating and creating an advocacy platform for young immigrants of all documentation statuses through the Local Ideas Festival We Fight Fear Immigration Conference.

The We Fight Fear team visited Washington D.C. to talk to Senators and Congressmen about immigration reform. During the one-day We Fight Fear Immigration Conference youth were able to attend informational seminars on topics such as applying for college, the future of DACA, and SB4 (a bill that would outlaw sanctuary cities and require that the local police to work with immigration and customs enforcement) meant for Texas.
