ACT NOW: Support Dreamers and Tell Congress to Pass the Dream Act

Earlier this month, the Trump administration announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Outraged, CPD affiliates sprang into action: organizing marches and rallies, educating their communities, taking legal action to save DACA, and calling on Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act - legislation which would provide protections for Dreamers without increasing immigration enforcement or further militarization of the border. Dreamers should not be used as bargaining chips for Trump’s border wall or deportation machine.

On Tuesday, September 26, CPD affiliates from all over the country traveled to Washington DC and occupied more than 50 Congressional offices, disrupting business as usual for over an hour with powerful testimonies, sit-ins, songs and chants.

But we need your help to make our voices heard. Here are three tangible things you can do today:

  1. Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to connect to your Senators and House Representative and demand they pass a clean DREAM Act!

  2. Make a donation to the Center for Popular Democracy to support this vital organizing effort of our affiliates who are on the ground working diligently to defend and protect our communities.

  3. Help elevate the voices of DACAmented youth by sharing their stories on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtags #DefendDACA and #HereToStay.

Call Congress today at (202) 224-3121 and demand they pass a clean Dream Act!
