Action 1: Tell Senators to Pass the DREAM Act Now

DACA recipients have been waiting for far too long. Many of them are already at risk of deportation, and the clock is ticking. Senator Durbin has, of course, been an amazing champion for the DACA program and deserves all our thanks. And Senator Duckworth has also come out in defense of those allowed to stay and work or go to school here under the DACA program. However, we cannot let Congress leave for the holidays without passing the DREAM Act.

Call our Senators to demand that they keep pushing McConnell to bring the DREAM Act up for a vote before the end of the year.

Call Senator Duckworth | DC:  202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC:  202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hi, my name is ______________ from [zip code], and I’m a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling because, while I appreciate all Senator ______ has done for DACA, we need to push even harder to get it passed before the end of the year. I'd like to ask the Senator to attach the DREAM Act to any must pass legislation that comes up. It's imperative that we ensure a secure future for all DACA recipients after they have placed their trust in our government to protect them.

Action 2: Attend Tax Reform Panel Wednesday
