Nuestra Historia/ Our History
KDC fue fundada por Alexis Meza, Erin Howard y Rogelio (Roy) Roman durante una convergencia nacional que impulsa la ley DREAM en 2010. Después de que la legislación fracasó por una votación cerrada, los miembros del KDC regresaron de la capital de la nación decepcionados pero con un incendio para ampliar nuestro trabajo de promoción.
Desde entonces, KDC ha estado involucrado en muchas actividades que van desde marchar, protestar y estar involucrado en la comunidad.
KDC was founded by Alexis Meza, Erin Howard, and Rogelio (Roy) Roman during a national convergence pushing for the DREAM act in 2010. After the legislation failed by a close vote, KDC members came back from the nation's capital disappointed but with a fire to expand our advocacy work.
Since then KDC has been involved in many activities ranging from marching, protesting, and being involved in the community.
