OHIO LATINO VOTE CAMPAIGN
We invite leaders and Latino/Hispanic serving organizations to increase civic engagement and participation for national and local elections. Each of us is uniquely positioned to help increase Latino/Hispanic participation in this important demonstration of civic engagement.
This year we are proud to once again partner with the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) to join the largest one-day national voter registration effort. National Voter Registration Day is September 22, 2020. For more details as to how you can become involved in voter registration efforts, visit: https://naleo.org/vote/

Each year the Latino Affairs Commission compiles reports on topics relating to Ohio’s Hispanic community. Our reports are designed to educate and facilitate discussion on particular challenges and opportunities facing Hispanic Ohioans. Whenever possible, Latino Community Reports include data specific to state legislator districts and counties. For some Latino Community Reports, however, it isn’t possible to find and cite data at the county or district level. The Ohio Latino Affairs Commission endeavors to be a valuable resource to state government in understanding and serving the Hispanic community.

WHAT IS DACA?
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created to allow undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before June 15, 2007 as a child under the age of 16 the ability to receive deferred action for a period of two years. DACA recipients have met specific criteria pertaining to education and public safety, with each applicant being handled on a case-by-case basis.

EXPIRATION DATES AND RENEWAL
This announcement does not automatically end DACA for anyone. Current DACA documents are valid until the expiration date.
STUDYING AFTER DACA RESCISSION
High school students will still be allowed to attend public high schools after their DACA expires based on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Plyler v. Doe. No one can be required to provide proof of legal status for K-12 education.
WORKING AFTER DACA RESCISSION
Anyone currently working with a DACA Employment Authorization Document (EAD) should be allowed to continue working until the document expires. Unexpired DACA EADs are valid for new employment, too. Terminating someone or refusing to hire them because their EAD will exipire in the future is illegal discrimination. Employers or workers with questions about the law should contact the U.S. Department of Justice Immigrant and Employee Rights Section.
