DACA Amicus Brief and Communications Toolkit

On October 4, 2019, the Presidents' Alliance, in collaboration with Perkins Coie, filed an amicus brief in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the consolidated cases in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. 

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the case on November 12, 2019, with a decision anticipated to be issued close to the end of June, though it could come as early as the beginning of 2020.

On October 8, 2019, the Presidents' Alliance and partners will officially publicize the filing of the amicus brief through a press statement, social media, and other communications materials. 

Please note that we respectfully request institutions to embargo public information regarding your institution’s joining of the amicus brief until the October 8, 2019 date. We will be joining partners from across many communities in sharing out our amicus briefs next week.

Below, we provide links for partners to download the latest draft of the brief and a communications toolkit containing sample statements, social media, op-eds, and campus messages to publicize an institution's participation in the brief.
