Local Resident makes News for DACA Protest

January 18, 2018

Last week we got a next day rush order request for a custom sweatshirt, here is the message: “My mom is going to be protesting in DC on her 78th birthday on 1/17. I would like to have a sweatshirt made for her that says “I WANT A CLEAN DACA BILL FOR MY BIRTHDAY” with a picture of a birthday cake with 78 on it.”  We were able to accommodate their rush request, and this morning they followed up with us and shared an NBC Nightly News clip, view here.

A group of over 100 Jewish activists travelled to DC to participate in a pro-DACA demonstration in support of Dreamers this week. After staging a peaceful sit-in, 86 people Daca Protestwere arrested, including several residents from the Champaign area. If you’re interested in learning more about this story, here is a Fox News video, as well as a video from Bend the Arc Jewish Action.  You can read more about the story on WAND 17.
