Action 1: Share the Dream Act Toolkit

Trump struck a devastating blow to the immigrant community by discontinuing the DACA program started by President Obama, which protects undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children. It is now up to Congress to pass the Dream Act, something they have failed to do since 2001. Both of Illinois’ Senators support the Dream Act, but there are many swing state representatives across the country that need to hear from their constituents about this vital issue. 

The Dream Act Toolkit makes it easy for citizens to contact vulnerable representatives to encourage them to pass the Dream Act. Please share the toolkit link on Twitter or on Facebook using the widget below to reach your friends across the country:

Action 2: Thank Senators for DACA Support and Ask Them to Protect Immigrants

Every person deserves to live with respect and dignity, and there is no doubt that immigrants (especially undocumented immigrants) are currently targets of injustice under the Trump administration. Both Senators Durbin and Duckworth have supported the Dream Act, which is an important first step in protecting current DACA recipients.

Please call the Senators to thank them for their support for DACA, and also to encourage them to stand up for all immigrants and push for protections that will keep families and communities from being torn apart through deportation.

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

Script: Hi, my name is ___. My zip code is _____ and I'm a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling to thank Senator [name] for speaking out in support of DACA recipients. I’d like to encourage him/her to fight hard to pass the Dream Act as soon as possible and to stand up for the millions of immigrant families across the country whose lives are being ruined by Trump’s aggressive deportations. Thank you for your time.

Action 3: Sign the Petition to End Interstate Crosscheck Voter Suppression in Illinois

Illinois participates in a program called Crosscheck which has been used to illegally purge voters from the rolls. Crosscheck is also a propaganda tool used to support Trump’s debunked claims of massive voter fraud. If you’d like to know more, read our FAQ.

Indivisible Illinois has started a petition to call on the Illinois State Board of Elections to fight voter suppression and end the use of Crosscheck in Illinois. Sign today!
