Action 1: Call on Your Reps to Reaffirm Their Support for the Dream Act

Today is the last day to pass the Dream Act with the budget bill. We are nearly out of time to protect 800,000 young people from deportation. We owe it to them to do everything we can to make sure this bipartisan piece of legislation finally passes.

Senators Durbin and Duckworth both voted to support the Dream Act last year. Please call them to thank them for their continued support and let them know you are counting on them to vote the right way today, should a vote come to the floor. 

    • Senator Duckworth | DC:  202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506

    • Senator Durbin | DC:  202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hello! My name is ___ and I’m calling from [zip code]. I wanted to thank [Senator] ___ for voting against the CR that didn’t include the Dream Act last year. Dreamers deserve MoCs who will stand with them and use their power to protect them from the Trump deportation machine, and I am proud that [Senator] used [her / his] power to do so. I also want the [Senator] to know that I expect [her / him] to continue voting to stand with Dreamers as the next CR comes up. Thank you.

 

Action 2: Attend or Volunteer at the Women’s March Saturday

Can you believe it’s been a year since Trump’s Inauguration? The Women’s March to the Polls is TOMORROW, Saturday, January 20 to commemorate the historic Women’s March last year and to let the country know that we’re ready to fight in the midterms this year!

 Join Indivisible Chicago at the March tomorrow. RSVP and get more info here.

To help ensure a positive, orderly environment at the March, we need as many volunteers as possible. Indivisible Chicago is looking for volunteers from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Sign up to volunteer here!
