Dream for America is a Gen Z-led 501(c)4 non-profit founded in 2023 by William He focused on identifying, educating, and mobilizing America’s students to promote the principles of freedom, democracy, & progressive government. We’re building the most organized, active, and powerful pro-democracy grassroots network both online and on-campuses across the country to engage young Americans of all backgrounds at all times — not just on the eve of an election.
Together, we’ll mobilize a new generation of democracy defenders because we are the leading progressive alternative to far-right youth groups like Turning Point USA.
The only way we fight fascism and defend democracy is to come together not as Democrats, not as Republicans – but as Americans, and as human beings first and foremost – to usher in a new era of politics not about division, but about solving the problems that we all share.

REEP Now’s vision is a world with a fair chance of life after prison. Currently, in Louisiana, those currently incarcerated are afforded no assistance in the parole process. In California, on the other hand, parole representation is a right. In Louisiana, the lack of counsel through the parole process results in unfair outcomes for those caught in the system of incarceration. At REEP Now we believe in the right to representation for parole hearings and this is why we have organized to provide parole support, advocacy and representation for those unable to access such services.
