Please participate in the Call-in Day to Congress on Monday, February 26, 2018! Your advocacy is critical to help the nearly 1.8 million Dreamers, young people who were brought into the United States by their parents as children. They may face deportation as soon as March 6, unless Congress reaches a bi-partisan deal to protect them. Please follow these easy steps to help:
- Please call 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard, and press 1 to connect to your Senators. Once you are connected to each Senator’s office, please ask the person on the phone to deliver this simple message: “I urge you to support a bipartisan, common-sense, and humane solution for Dreamers: • Protect Dreamers from deportation and provide them with a path to citizenship. • Reject proposals that undermine family immigration or protections for unaccompanied children. • As a Catholic, I know that families are not “chains,” but a blessing to be protected. • Act now to protect Dreamers, our immigrant brothers and sisters.”
- Please call 855-589-5698 a second time to reach the Capitol switchboard again, and press 2 to connect to your Representative. Once you are connected to the Representative’s office, please ask the person on the phone to deliver the same message as above. After completing your call, please go to http://www.justiceforimmigrants.org to learn more about Dreamers and find other ways to voice your support.
It is that time of year already to begin planning VBS. We are looking for an organized, take charge person that is willing to be the chair or co-chair for this year’s VBS. This is a fairly short-term commitment and last year’s chair is willing to help show you the ropes so that you will have the information you need to make it a great success. The sooner we get started the easier it will be. If this sounds like you, please call or email Theresa Shaw at 812-944-8283 x2 or email@example.com
