ACTION ALERT to support the immigrants in MA and beyond!
1. Defend DACA by calling on your Member of Congress to support the DREAM Act. Information here.
2. Read this inspiring op-ed by State Senator Jamie Eldridge about turning strong words into legislative commitments.
3. Turn your own strong reading into legislative action by pushing your state rep and senator to support the Safe Communities Act. This google form, created by Progressive Massachusetts, will guide you through a targeted phone call. Super cool!
