The Pledge is a symbol of unity for aspiring Americans and everyone who supports immigration fairness. Our movement reflects the great American story of people from across the globe drawn to a beacon of hope, opportunity and freedom.

With this symbol, we have a way to raise our voices in support of meaningful immigration reform – through the executive actions of DACA and DAPA. On April 18, the Supreme Court will hear from all of us, the many Americans who want to see undocumented immigrants and their families safe from deportation.

I’ve been pledging allegiance since middle school, to a flag and government that have yet to recognize me. This new symbol is a sign of unity—a reminder that as Americans, both documented and undocumented, we stand together in the fight for immigration reform.
