Aliento Education Fund will host its annual Education Day Wednesday, Feb. 15, at the Arizona State Capitol to provide students the opportunity to talk to legislators to inform them on multiple issues that are important for our communities.
Aliento is a youth-led organization that serves undocumented, DACA, and mixed immigration status families to transform trauma into hope and action. 
“Every year, we have a huge and amazing group of students that seek the opportunity to talk directly to our state representatives and senators to make sure they hear from them about some of the most pressing issues for our communities,” Reyna Montoya, Aliento’s Founder and CEO said in a release.

if (!document.MAX_used) document.MAX_used = ',';
document.write ("”);
This year, the students will discuss concerns on issues such as driver´s licenses for Dreamers, DACAmented, and Undocumented communities, repealing the English-only measure, and securing funding for the College Promise Programs. 
All this after the voters approved Proposition 308, which allows any Arizona student, regardless of their immigration status, to be eligible for in-state tuition if they graduated from and spent at least two years attending an Arizona public or private high school, and it is now in the hands of the Arizona electorate to make this happen. 
Aliento supports students and families impacted by the inequities of lacking an immigration status through education initiatives, arts & healing programming, leadership development training, policy & advocacy.
