The most-pressing deadline for current DACA beneficiaries is actually Oct. 5, less than a month away. Some Mission DACA beneficiaries now have to quickly pull together $495 to pay the fee and fill out their renewal paperwork so that they have a two-year renewal of their deportation protection and work permits. This translates to their being under the aegis of DACA into the early months of 2020.
How you can help…
DINE + DONATE ON SEPT. 14: Stop by for a tasty Senegalese meal at Bissap Baobab (3372 19th Street @ Mission) on Thursday, Sept. 14, starting at 5:30 p.m. Bissap Baobab has agreed to donate 20 percent of your dinner cost and all drinks on table to the DACA fund. Donations will also be accepted on site. As a winner of a 2016 OpenTable “Diners’ Choice Award,” a great time is guaranteed.
DONATE NOW: Can’t make it to either of these fundraisers? You can still easily help. Please donate online (type “DACA” in last box for “Program.”) Every dollar counts.
