Saba Nafees, Dream Rider from Fort Worth, Texas, said: “A country we call home is our greatest gift. We are only millions of young dreamers who have been raised in this land we call home, yet solely due to the lack of comprehensive immigration solutions, we struggle with having the rights that we deserve, the opportunities that we are capable of earning, and the inability to live with freedom. But we ride on in this dream journey of ours and dance through the obstacles as that is what we believe is the American spirit.“

On August 3, 2015, the Dream Riders Across America rallied in front of the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery with the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the Alabama chapter of the NAACP to organize broad support for the building of a unified progressive network of young people, immigrants, and communities of color marching for immigrant rights, racial justice, and the need for civic engagement in our communities. The Dream Riders have been traveling on a bus from Washington D.C. to engage in these conversations with communities in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and now Alabama, before departing for Louisiana and Texas. The national bus tour was organized by the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC), Korean American Resource & Cultural Center (KRCC), Korean Resource Center (KRC), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), SEIU United Service Workers West, and SEIU California State Council.

Max Kim, Dream Rider from Los Angeles, said: “I am joining Dream Riders Across America because I want to fight for immigrant rights. I know what it is like to live in fear of deportation, unsure of what will happen in the future. I grew up in America just like every other American and am learning now that while my classmates and peers move on with their lives, I am experiencing many roadblocks because of something I had no control over. I am asking community members to give all immigrants the opportunity to have a fair and equal shot at the American Dream. Join me in this struggle by speaking up for all community members.”
