es una organización comunitaria con el propósito de luchar por la justicia social en nuestras comunidades. Nuestra misión es involucrar a miembros de la comunidad a que actúen por medio de su fe y sus valores para hacer frente a los asuntos que les afectan, y así lograr cambios positivos en nuestra comunidad.

ACTION ALERT: Support HB3528, Equal Opportunity for State Financial Aid at Public Institutions

PASO youth in Springfield

HB3528, a proposed legislation that would allow our public universities the flexibility to allocate their financial aid to all Illinois residents, including undocumented students, will be taken to a vote in the IL House tomorrow or Friday. Take action today, by taking 3 minutes, you can help ensure undocumented students also have an opportunity to a college education. 

In the past months, P.A.S.O. has been working with a coalition of students, University administrators and other community and state-wide organizations in support of HB3528, a bill introduced by Rep. Lisa Hernandez. This piece of legislation would ensure that all residents of Illinois have equal opportunity to apply for state financial aid, and would allow undocumented students in our public universities to receive state financial aid.

Currently, undocumented students are excluded from receiving federal or state financial aid. You have an opportunity to change this! HB3528 would give our colleges the flexibility to allocate their financial aid to all Illinois residents, including undocumented students who are already excelling and striving to obtain a college education.
