Since 2013, CIRC has been providing workshops around Colorado to help community members navigate the complexities of applying or renewing for DACA. In 2020 alone, we were able to assist with 275 DACA renewals.
Although this is a great achievement, many folx who register for these workshops don’t attend because they can’t afford to pay the fees. To apply or renew for DACA, applicants must pay $502 in total ($495 for fees, $7 for shipping).
That’s why we’re creating DACA Scholarships that will help immigrants continue to call Colorado home. Everyone, regardless of immigration or economic status, deserves to belong. As the new round of stimulus checks begin depositing their way into Americans’ bank accounts, we ask for your financial support.
“DACA serves as an essential tool in providing access to education, employment, and financial growth. Without it, many individuals who are eligible will continue to have to live in the U. S. with limited support.” – Kevin Omaña Mendoza, Legal Services Manager at CIRC
