National Multimedia DACA Campaign Wants You to ThinkAboutIt!

Carnegie Corporation grantee Televisa Foundation has developed a bilingual national communications campaign called Think About It – Piénsalo. Think About It targets the Latino population and seeks to inspire potential Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries and their families to consider, or think about, applying, while at the same time recognizing the opportunities, challenges and concerns applying may bring. The multiplatform campaign is using videos and social media to share crucial information that will assist undocumented young people who were brought to the U.S. as children before 2007.

The videos, which depict real people and their experiences with the DACA process, aim to educate potential DACA recipients on fraud prevention, educational requirements, and on lining up support for the process. Learn more about this campaign and watch the videos at http://thinkaboutit.us
