ASHLEY LUKASHEVSKY

@ashlukadraws

This illustrator/designer creates impactful images to highlight social movements.

We need to make our reps pass the Dream Act immediately. They work for US. A secure passage of the #dreamact means that young undocumented Americans would finally have a way to attain permanent legal status in the US. Visit dreamacttoolkit.org to find out which lawmakers need to be targeted or if you don't have as much time text to 50409 to send faxes to your representatives via text. Take action for our undocumented community- a community that represents people from many different origins. Stand up for undocumented Latinx! Stand up for undocumented Black folks! Stand up for their parents! … CHIRLA in LA is offering free DACA renewal services. If you would like to donate to their efforts or access them, visit CHIRLA.org … Join me this Sunday at 3 pm, MacArthur Park in LA. It's going to be a huge rally for our undocumented community 💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿
