A peaceful DACA rally and march is planned for Wednesday, February 14, in Cedar Rapids.

Those interested in voicing their public support for "Dreamers" are encouraged to attend the rally and march at Coe College.  Beginning at 3 p.m. at the Stewart Memorial Library, the march will make its way to the Linn County Courthouse and back.

In a press release, organizer Ryan Oppegard states that the goal of the rally is to "promote legislation that will assist DACA Dreamers, change the public perception of our Dreamers, and combat the injustice of how the current White House administration has decided to handle this immigration issue."

Organizers ask those planning to attend to make a handmade sign displaying their DACA support.
