WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-- Kansas youths are hosting a day-long immigration conference and legislative forum in Wichita this weekend.

Carlos Vargas and Erika Andiola, co-founders of the national Dream Act Coalition, will join a group of youths involved locally with the Kansas People's Action. The six-hour conference on ``Keeping the Dream Alive'' begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at 1751 N. Ash in Wichita.

The conference will devote time to educating local voters about issues faced by immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally. The conference seeks to teach local youth that they can be involved in the political process by using their voices to influence others who can vote.
