On The Air Podcast - This podcast is a conversation with Estella Vazquez, Dreamer Program Coordinator at Cuesta College Monarch Dreamer Center in San Luis Obispo, California. Estella informs us of the most recent DACA litigation sheet dated October 14, 2022 and explains what the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is all about and how it works. She discusses the application process, how the program keeps DACA students from deportation, offers work permits to students enabling them to earn a salary while studying, and more. The website for information on DACA is www.uscis.gov where one can find answers to 88 frequently asked questions. Click on the photo to hear the podcast.
Yes We Can Peacebuilders is dedicated to the education of individuals and communities on the path to nonviolence so as to inspire and engage people to make nonviolent living a part of their everyday lives.
We envision a culture of peace in a community that fosters respect for all individuals, collaborating to eliminate economic discrimination, poverty, homelessness, racial and sexual discrimination, stereotyping, harassment, bullying, gangs, killing, war, and environmental degradation.
HOW WE HELP
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
PEACE WEEK ACTIONS YEARLY
Every year we join with national and international groups to celebrate International Peace Day. In 2022 we brought nonviolence education to five youth groups and gathered around the Peace Pole to rededicate the Morro Bay Peace Proclamation. Here youngsters from Children's Center preschool join hands around the peace pole.
NON VIOLENT CITIES PROJECT
The Nonviolent Cities Project is a grassroots movement and organizing strategy for activists to work locally for the transformation of their community into a peaceful nonviolent city, as Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned it. Morro Bay, California joined the Nonviolent Cities Project on September 11, 2018 with a proclamation from the Mayor and City Council.
Yes We Can Peacebuilders supports social justice and humanitarian organizations in nonviolence actions.
We offer young people training on the 34 Basic Human Rights established by the United Nations through Youth for Human Rights.
