The D.E.A.R. Foundation is a new nonprofit serving North Carolina's Triangle region that is dedicated to protecting immigrant rights and promoting social justice. Its founder and executive director, Johanna Kelley (MIDP '12), based the nonprofit on her master's project. “The immigrant community in the United States, and in North Carolina, is facing a difficult time," she said. “They are voiceless and they need support to be heard and to be respected.”
