What the American Dream Is All About

Neidi Dominguez came to the United States at the age of nine with her mother and younger sister. In 2008, she graduated with honors from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She has been an advocate and organizer for DREAMers and helped lead efforts to pass the federal DREAM Act. Recently, she served as a strategic campaign coordinator for the CLEAN Carwash Campaign.

“What’s really at stake is the simple American Dream of being able to work hard, raise a family, buy a home and put your education to use,” Dominguez says in this video.
