Keep fighting for the DREAM!

Official daily action for Tuesday, September 5

There have been several reports that Trump plans to announce the termination of DACA today. There are different variations on the reporting, but only in the details of how and when DACA will end.  

None of this matters if Congress can legislate DACA with a veto-proof majority!

As Trump announces his intentions for DACA, we must show Congress that we demand the continuation of this vital program.

Action 1: Protest Trump’s announcement

The moment Trump announces this inhumane policy, we need to be ready to take to the streets and resist. To that end, we will be joining One America in holding a protest in downtown Seattle.

Location:
El Centro De La Raza
2524 16th Ave S
Seattle, 98144

Time:
2:00 p.m. press conference, speakers at 2:30 p.m.

Action 2: Demand our senators co-sign the Dream Act

Patty Murray:
DC - 202-224-2621  Seattle - 206-553-5545
Maria Cantwell:
DC - 202-224-3441  Seattle - 206-220-6400


Sample Script:
My name is [NAME] from [CITY, ZIP], and I’m calling about the bipartisan Durbin-Graham “DREAM Act” (S. 1615). I want to know why Senator [Name] has not co-sponsored this bill protecting hundreds of thousands of Americans from deportation.
