Action 1: Keep the Dream alive!

Time is running out for Dreamers. In just three months, DACA protections will expire for nearly a million Americans. Fortunately, there’s another deadline that’s coming even sooner: Congress has until Dec. 8 to pass a spending bill, or the government will shut down. This is probably the most leverage our representatives will have to defend Dreamers. Let’s demand they use it to the fullest!

(We’re focusing on senators here since we also want to call our representatives about the #TrumpTaxScam.)

Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621, (206) 553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441, (206) 220-6400

Sample Script:
“Hello! My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ZIP]. I’d like to thank [NAME] for standing up for Dreamers in the past. Please promise to vote against an end-of-year spending bill if there is no agreement on enacting a Clean DREAM Act."

Action 2: Keep up pressure on the #TrumpTaxScam

Just because this horrible bill passed in the Senate doesn’t mean the fight is over. The bill still has to go through reconciliation in the House. Let’s help our representatives tell their colleagues that their phones are still ringing off the hook!

Don’t forget to fill out our call log so that we can track our impact: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Rep. Pramila Jayapal: (202) 225-3106, (206) 674-0040
Rep. Adam Smith: (202) 225-8901, (425) 793-5180

Sample script:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ZIP CODE]. I’m furious that the Senate voted to pass the Tax Bill on Saturday. It is irresponsible to increase the budget deficit so that the Republicans can cut taxes for corporate interests. Please take every measure to stop this bill from final passage. [If leaving voicemail, give your full street address so you’ll be counted. Also, leaving a personal story about how the tax scam would hurt you is valuable to representatives.]”
