The Dream is Now Releases ‘Dream it Now,’ a Music Video Calling Congress to Pass Common Sense Immigration Reform to Keep Families Together.

The Dream is Now, The Office of Academy Award-Winning Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, and singer-songwriter Megan Keely have come together to create ‘Dream it Now,’ a music video calling on Congress to pass common sense immigration reform to keep families together.

WHO: The Dream is Now is an effort of concerned citizens who believe America’s broken immigration system needs to be fixed, giving undocumented youth and their families the chance to earn their citizenship. Megan Keely is a singer-songwriter and immigration advocate who, shocked and concerned with the treatment of undocumented youth and their families, wrote “Dream it Now” to call on Congress to pass common sense immigration reform.

“Dream it Now” is supported by partners United We DREAM, Alliance for Citizenship, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education Bay Area (ASPIRE Bay Area), and Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education Los Angeles (ASPIRE Los Angeles).

WHAT: “Dream it Now,” a music video celebrating families, is a collaboration by The Office of Academy Award-Winning Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, The Dream is Now, and singer-songwriter Megan Keely. “Dream it Now” celebrates undocumented youth and their families, and their pride in the only country they’ve ever called home, the United States of America. “Dream it Now” reveals the heartbreaking disruption of broken immigration policies.

The objective of “Dream it Now” is to urge viewers to let their congressional representative know that they support common sense immigration reform by calling 1-888-787-9658, and visiting thedreamisnow.org to identify and attend their local congressional town hall. “Dream it Now” also calls on viewers to text “dreamitnow” to 877877 to join United We DREAM to advocate for immigration reform.

 WHEN: “Dream it Now” will be officially released on July 3rd, 2013.

WHERE: “Dream it Now” will be released online on thedreamisnow.org, YouTube and iTunes. The Dream is Now and its partners will promote ‘Dream is Now’ to their supporters.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv4PiqqnJfM&feature=youtu.be

    http://www.voxxi.com/ has banned me for posting on their website because they are an arm of Marco Rubio in Florida! Marco Rubio is the TEA-type who has falsely championed for immigration reform but back-stabs those of color. Rubio thinks of himself as “White!” His name makes him Hispanic/Latino but his thought process is totally anti-immigrant. I had been posting for over a year and all of a sudden I was banned because I railed against what I thought was blatant misinformation about Rubio concerning the “Immigration Reform” bill. My ability to voice my opinion has been curtailed by this site. Though there are others, I feel slighted by what I considered an open society for communication and compromise. Everyone has the right to voice their opinion and the vote come election day!
    VOXXI is a bigoted site – Go there and voice your opinions and see if you get booted off their site.
