On Thursday, May 19th, undocumented students and allies from across North Carolina will gather at the North Carolina General Assembly to call for fairness, opportunity and equal access to education by shining a light on the thousands of undocumented students who graduate each year from North Carolina high schools but are unable to continue their education due to the extreme costs of out-of-state tuition. 

North Carolina has an estimated 42,000 undocumented students in its school systems. Hundreds of undocumented students graduate from NC high schools each year, but are unable to attend college because of the high out-of-state tuition fees and their inability to receive federal and state financial aid. A broad coalition of groups from across the state will gather to highlight the need for tuition equality.

Join us at the North Carolina General Assembly (16 W. Jones Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27601) as we fight for tuition equity for ALL!

In collaboration with Action NC and grassroots organizers, the “Si a las Licencias” group will help organize and participate in the “We Make America Great” march, which will protest McCrory’s role in the lawsuit against Obama’s Executive Action and highlight the positive contributions of immigrants in the U.S. The walk will start in Charlotte on Sunday, November 8th, and end in Raleigh on Friday, November 20th. It will be a relay walk and each day different groups of people will walk an average of 15 miles. Each mile walked will represent $1,180,000 in tax revenue from immigrants, reaching a total of $197 million. For more information or to help with/ participate in the march, contact Iliana via email or by calling 919-835-1525.  Be sure to check the Facebook event page for regular updates.
