January 2013: Call Congress TODAY! National Faith Call-In Day for Humane Immigration Reform
As Congress begins its new session, it is crucial that faith-based and grassroots communities lift our voices and petition for humane, inclusive immigration reform based on keeping families together and a fair, not punitive, path to citizenship.
Join our National Faith Call-in Day for Humane Immigration Reform—call your senators TODAY!
Call 1-866-940-2439 to be connected with your Senator. (Not sure who your senator is? Check here.)
Tell them that as their constituent and as a person of faith, you want immigration reform that provides a pathway to FULL CITIZENSHIP and that prioritizes FAMILY UNITY. Here’s a sample script you can use to tailor your personal message:
Hi, my name is (NAME/TITLE), from (CITY, CONGREGATION).
May I please speak with the staff person who handles immigration issues?
I urge the Senator to support a common sense, humane immigration reform bill that prioritizes family unity and creates a pathway to citizenship for aspiring Americans who are currently undocumented. What is the Senator doing to help enact immigration reform this year?
Be sure to call twice to reach both your senators!
Please spread the word! Ask your friends, family members, neighbors, congregations, and communities to call their Senators today and through this week!
In faith and hope,
Audra, Craig, Jennifer, Jessica, Meredith, Susan, and Taquiena UUA Witness Ministries staff
