Time is running out for almost 9,000 Tennesseans. Will you join us to raise your heart and voice for Dreamers? Urge congress to pass a clean Dream Act before January 19th! Please call our senators during this Week of Action for Dreamers.

Here are some ideas of what you can say:

  • Time is running out for the millions of young immigrants who are American in all but paperwork. President Trump created this crisis by ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), and now it’s up to Republicans in Congress to join with Democrats to pass legislation.
  • Dreamers are us. While some are still students in high school, others are already doctors, lawyers, engineers and teachers.
  • This is urgent: Dreamers are already losing their DACA status. Since DACA recipients cannot renew their DACA status, many are already starting to lose their protected status. Young immigrants are having to put their dreams on hold. Many risk losing their jobs and having to postpone their higher education plans.
  • Do you know a dreamer? Share how they’ve impacted your life.
