Business leader protecting Dreamers through FWD.us

by The 100 Companies

Local community leaders, business owners and others are partnering with FWD.us to find a permanent solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that will protect Dreamers and DACA recipients. One particular community leader is Erika Lucas, CEO of StitchCrew, who understands the vital role that DACA recipients and immigrants play in our workforce and in our economy.

recent study found that 91 percent of DACA recipients are employed and that 5 percent started their own businesses after becoming a recipient. Lucas, a Mexican immigrant herself, has worked in Oklahoma with FWD.us for the past five years, to protect these individuals.
