Action 1: Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Chicago

The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. continues to shape this country and inspire activism around the world. Dr. King’s brave, uncompromising work fighting the horrors of racism, segregation and war helped bend the arc of history towards justice.

With the overt racism that continues to flow from every corner of this country, from the White House to the county courthouse, Dr. King’s teachings have never been more relevant.

We hope that you can take some time today to reflect on Dr. King’s life and legacy. There are also many events happening around the city to honor Dr. King and many ways our members can participate including:


Action 2: Phone Bank for the Dream Act This Week

We have less than ONE WEEK left to pass the Dream Act. The deadline is THIS FRIDAY, and Congress must act now.

It is urgent that we organize and mobilize our community; including students, parents, teachers, and allies to phone bank for DACA recipients. Our representatives need to hear our loud and clear message that they are here to stay and that we need a clean Dream Act to pass NOW!

There are phone banking sessions happening every day this week where you can call registered voters and urge them to contact their representatives about the Dream Act!

Please bring your cell phone and headphones and if possible, a laptop/tablet (this makes it easier to read the call script). Charging cables or extra battery packs are recommended!


Action 3: Rally to Defend Immigrants on Wednesday

Last week, in addition to espousing overtly racist views about Haiti and the entire continent of Africa, Trump announced his decision to end protections for 200,000 Salvadorans with Temporary Protective Status.

With the upcoming budget deadline on Friday, January 19, we need to make our support for the Dream Act heard loud and clear.

Join us on Wednesday, January 17 at 5 p.m. at Daley Plaza as we demand that Congress pass a Clean DREAM act NOW and protect the hundreds of thousands of immigrants living with TPS. RSVP and view details here.
