DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

As a part of the Equal Justice Center's mission of empowering working families to obtain fair treatment in the workplace and in our shared society, the EJC provides legal assistance to undocumented students and graduates applying for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  DACA is an executive action program that allows undocumented young students and graduates who have grown up in U.S. to obtain temporary, renewable employment authorization and protection from deportation. Since DACA was first established in 2012, the EJC has helped thousands of individuals across Texas obtain work permits and immigration relief through DACA, enabling these promising young people to secure better jobs and earnings and a better future for themselves and their families and their communities.  

The EJC provides individualized legal assistance to Central Texas residents who are seeking legal assistance applying for DACA. We also conduct community education and information sessions that help community organizations, families, and individuals learn about DACA and how they might benefit.      

Individuals and groups interested in obtaining our services, planning a clinic in their community, or receiving general information regarding DACA or immigrant rights, can call our toll-free hotline at 888.670.6854 or email us at deferredaction@equaljusticecenter.org.
