I make the recipe and in the margins of the cookbook I’ll jot down whether or not I liked it along with a note about what happened that day. It can be anything from something historical happening like, “the Supreme Court ruled on DACA today”, or something silly like, “today I got a facemask tan after I spent the day outside.”
We are officially HALFWAY through 2020! We need a party for that. Speaking of parties, I want to wish all my beautiful NAHREP familia a happy 4th of July this weekend.

NAHREP is thrilled by the Supreme Court’s decision today to reverse the Justice Department’s termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We must also ensure that DACA recipients eager to contribute to our economy are given the tools to continue doing so.
Stories are a critical vehicle for human connection. They are powerful mostly because they make us feel something. Storytelling is an especially powerful tool in advocacy because stories have the ability to put a human emotion and a human face to laws and regulations. As the subject of DACA once again takes center stage, I thought of a young man who embodies the most beautiful aspects of the American Dream.
