DREAMers:  Living in the Shadow of Hope
Photographs by Lynn Hoffman-Brouse
Interviews by Ann Brewer
An estimated 2.1 million undocumented children and teens were brought to the United States by their parents. They learned English and attended elementary, middle, and high school in the only country they have ever known. But they cannot drive or work legally and, in many states, cannot pursue higher education. Through the DREAM Act undocumented students who meet specific criteria would be offered a pathway to citizenship.
EXHIBIT
The DREAMers exhibit puts a face and a voice to the hopes of the young people whose lives would be impacted by passage of the DREAM Act. Through portraits and written statements, the exhibit showcases the fears and uncertainty these teens encounter on a daily basis, the dreams they have for the future, and the tremendous potential they represent if allowed to participate fully in our society. 
To schedule this exhibit for your school or gallery please contact Ann Brewer at abrewer@educationopps.org or call 801-541-7343.  To view more photos from the exhibit, please visit www.hoffmanbrouse.com.
BOOK - NOW AVAILABLE!!!
The entire exhibit has also been published in a 96 page soft-cover book.  For more information, or to order online, please visit the DREAMers Book page.
