Welcome to Cities for DACA! 

The Cities for DACA campaign makes clear that DACA recipients strengthen the social and institutional fabric of our cities by highlighting recipients’ stories and the positive contributions they make to communities across the country, as well as the negative consequences that ending DACA would have in our cities and counties nationwide. The campaign also seeks to ensure that DACA recipients and impacted communities have accurate information about the program and know how to access local and national resources and services.

Resource Guide for DACA Recipients and Impacted Communities

Cities for Action created this guide to help DACA recipients and impacted communities stay informed about the current status of the DACA program. It highlights key resources amid a constantly shifting landscape and offers tools to elevate the voices of DACA recipients and impacted communities, and drives the message that DACA recipients strengthen the social and institutional fabric of the U.S.
