Lift Your Voice to Protect the Dreamers.

This week, there will be a vote in the U.S. Senate to protect Dreamers.  Unfortunately, there will also be attempts to take away trafficking protections for unaccompanied children, make it harder for people to seek asylum and actively separate families. Follow us and ELCA Ammparo to find out what you can do to take action!

Lift your voice by:

  1. Follow our ELCA Advocacy Facebook page and Twitter for last minute updates and calls to action
  2. Call your legislator through the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, and say the following:

“My name is ___. I am your constituent from (city/town) and a person of faith. As the Senator considers how to vote on immigration amendments, I urge him/her to support legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers without harming other vulnerable people. Please vote no on any policies that take away trafficking protections for unaccompanied children, restrict family or diversity visas, make it harder for people to seek asylum and carelessly increases border enforcement”
