The time for compassionate immigration reform is NOW

0 Comment(s) | Posted |

Today, thousands of immigration reform advocates are in D.C. reminding Congress of the energy, urgency and moral necessity to overhaul our broken immigration system and create a compassionate and comprehensive immigration policy. If you can't be in D.C. support the actions on Capitol Hill 

Check out the live stream of events in D.C. this afternoon. 

Call (866) 563-5608 to get connected to your Senators. If you need help knowing what to say when you call, try:

I am a constituent calling from [Your State]. As a person of faith, I am calling to ask [Senator's Name] to support real immigration reform that puts an end to inhumane enforcement, keeps families together, respects the rights of workers, and creates a clear path to citizenship. Can I count on [Senator's Name]'s support for real and humane immigration reform?

Faith leaders will begin events on the steps of Congress with a prayer vigil at 3:30 p.m. EST, 2:30 p.m. CST. You can join them online! Click here to RSVP for the Online Prayer Vigil on Facebook!

Download a collection of prayers for immigrants and honor our brothers and sisters throughout the afternoon!
