The first-ever CA DREAM Graduation took place in the summer of 2012 at the Civic Center Plaza outside of San Francisco City Hall. Hundreds of undocumented students from across the country came together to celebrate the accomplishments of all DREAMers, and to remind the country that we still need a long-term immigration remedy. During the graduation ceremony, undocumented students walked the stage and received their diploma as a symbol of what the DREAM Act would mean to them and what it means to be a DREAMer. Guest speakers included American political activist, scholar, and author Angela Davis.
