DACA has been a frequently visited topic this year, with new changes, developments, and attempts to dismantle it. The constantly change can be confusing and overwhelming. Luckily, Make the Road Nevada is watching closely the status of DACA and is communicating the updates to you in an easy to understand way. With that, there are some updates in relation to DACA: 

  • First-time DACA applications are being accepted
  • Renewals requests are being accepted 
  • Advanced parole returns to its original state and follows its original requirements
  • Renewals return to the two-year renewal period as well as employment authorization

For folks who received their documentation after July 28, 2020, USCIS will provide evidence of the one-year extensions to the DACAmented community. Our sister organization, Make the Road NY, was live on Monday from our Facebook page with helpful information. Watch the video here.

For helpful information on what you may need to apply for DACA, download our DACA resource guide here.

As always if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to amigxs@maketheroadnv.org

Thank you to everyone who donated to our #MRNVgivingtuesday fundraiser. Together we were able to raise $1,375!

As part of our #MRNVgivingtuesday we went LIVE on Facebook on December 1st, 2020. We were joined by our member leader Emma sharing her personal story on how the pandemic has not only affected her work but also her health. Emma, like most undocumented working mothers, has been hit the hardest this year, and being ineligible to receive any federal relief makes it difficult to pay utilities and rent bills as they continue to stack up. Emma was one of the 385 immigrant families MRNV was fortunate to help with direct cash assistance this year and we want to help more families like hers in Nevada.


Watch our live fundraiser to see our journey through 2020,  see our members in action, our small businesses that have helped us along the way, and important resources from the Governor’s Offices of New Americans.

Even though our#MRNVgivingtuesday fundraiser is over, we will continue to collect donations for our Nevada Immigrant Relief Fund. You can still make a donation online here.
