Help protect Dreamers & prevent a new wave of family separation!
It’s urgent that we make our voices heard in our local newspapers so that lawmakers understand we must keep families together and protect Dreamers with legislation now!
Right now, we are expecting a court decision that will likely end DACA, (the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) which provides legal status for Dreamers, people who were brought to this country as children, making it the only place they have ever called home. This decision would be devastating, not just to the 600,000+ people enrolled in the program but to thousands of families and children as well as America’s workforce, communities, and our economy. Yet courts may be poised to do just that. That’s why it is so urgent that Congress act before the end of the year to create permanent protections for DACA recipients.
That's why we need YOU to take action now!
One of the most high-impact, powerful things you can do right now is send a letter to the editor to your local paper. This sends a clear message to your members of Congress that their constituents care about Dreamers in your community!
Here’s how to send your letter:
