We are taking the fight for a CLEAN Dream Act to the office of Senator Chuck Schumer!
In 2012, Dreamers took nonviolent direct action and won DACA, an executive action that protected 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation. On September 5th, President Trump repealed DACA, threatening to strip Dreamers of their ability to live, learn & work in their home – the USA.
Now, we MUST pass the DREAM Act, which would make DACA the law and grant undocumented youth a path to citizenship. Our best chance is to force Congress to put DREAM into the Omnibus Spending bill, which must be passed by December 8th to fund the federal government. We are calling on every Democrat and Republican who says they support Dreamers to join Senators Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and others who have pledged to vote against any spending bill that does not include the DREAM Act.
It doesn’t matter if you have zero experience advocating for immigration reform, and it doesn’t matter if have never been a part of a political movement. All you need to be successful in this fight is a commitment to the cause. We will provide you with the tools, resources, and knowledge to be a critical organizer in helping get the support we need to pass the Clean DREAM Act in the upcoming spending bill.
