Tools You Can Use

 

Action 1: Phone Bank for DACA TONIGHT

DACA expires ONE MONTH from today, on March 5. Now is the time to make a critical push to protect more than 800,000 people from deportation from the only country they have ever known. The time to pass the Dream Act is NOW.

Please help the effort by making phone calls to voters in key states to ask them to contact their lawmakers on this vital issue. There are two phone bank sessions happening tonight:

  • Oak Park: RSVP to phone bank from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Democratic Party of Oak Park (6941-A W. North Ave.)

  • North Side: RSVP to phone bank from 6:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at 47th Ward Democrats’ office (2234 W. Irving Park Rd.)

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!
