Chalkboard Project’s statement on DACA

Friday, September 8, 2017

Chalkboard Project is deeply troubled by President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which will disrupt the lives of thousands of children, students, and families across our nation.

We are particularly concerned with the insecurity, disruption, and trauma this action will inflict in our classrooms and schools for educators, students, and parents.

With the matter now in the hands of Congress, we urge congressional leaders to enact a solution that is just, inclusive, and compassionate—where everyone, regardless of immigration status, is valued and respected, and can continue to build a future for themselves and our nation.
