Mocha Moms Statement On Rescinding DACA
Nation's Leading Voice for Mothers of Color Speak Out For Dreamers

UPPER MARLBORO, MD, September 6, 2017 -  Mocha Moms, Inc. is incredibly disappointed in President Donald Trump's move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). We, mothers of color, teach our children to dream, and to dream big; beyond the obstacles we know exist for them simply because of the color of their skin. The President's elimination of DACA literally eliminates the realization of dreams for hundreds of thousands of young people who are American in every way except on paper.

We stand in solidarity with the mothers of these Dreamers and those mothers who are Dreamers, themselves! In doing so, we strongly urge Congress to put aside partisan divide and protect these young people who personify what is truly great about America!
