Local Latino youth activists were making the rounds yesterday, including the Wake County school board meeting.
As noted on NC Equal's web page, the activists were in Chapel Hill on Tuesday for an event urging Congress to pass the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. To qualify, immigrants would have to complete two years of college or military service and keep a clean record.
The youth then went to the Wake school board meeting "to speak out against plans to re-segregate schools there."
NC Equals says its goal is to end the federal 287g program and school resegregation. It's a member of Wake Education Advocates, an umbrella group for various supporters of the old diversity policy.
