Immigration Rights & Reform

Immigration Rights & Reform

Updated: June 20

Like you we’ve been overwhelmed by news of the Immigrant Families Being Torn Apart at the Border.  So much information and misinformation, and confused by where to put our efforts, our money, and our direct actions.

To help us navigate, we’ve put together an action plan that includes:

  • a summary of the issues,
  • five actions you can take now (including call scripts to help when contacting your representatives),
  • organizations to support

We’re sharing this action plan with you in hopes that you will also find it helpful.  Feel free to pass it on.

This is a living document that will be updated regularly. Now let’s raise some hell.
